Manchester United Star On The Brink Of Summer Exit, Not Martial!! 

Manchester United Star On The Brink Of Summer Exit, Not Martial!!

Luke Shaw is reportedly facing a fight to stay at Manchester United.

The 21-year-old, who joined Manchester United for £27million from Southampton, has endured an injury-sodden career so far at Old Trafford.

He suffered a horrific leg break against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League in September 2015, which ruled him out for 11 months, and has struggled to regain his starting place since.

And the Daily Mirror claim he has a fight on his hands to convince Jose Mourinho that he still has what it takes.

It is claimed the United boss has questioned the left-back’s mental toughness to cut it at a top club, which has cast doubt over the England international’s future.

Shaw has been linked with a move to Liverpool with Jurgen Klopp keen to replace the unconvincing Alberto Moreno.

However, Shaw’s agent Jonathan Barnett insisted last month he has no intention of leaving  the club after angrily rubbishing claims over a summer exit.

He told IBtimes UK: “I am angry with these reports suggesting Luke Shaw will leave Manchester United in the summer.”

“Shaw is happy at Manchester United and also, Manchester United are happy with him.”

Shaw has made 14 appearances across all competitions for the Red Devils this season and is contracted to the club until the summer of 2018.

He was playing some fantastic football for Manchester United, under Mourinhowho tried to sign him when in charge at Chelsea because he rated the left-back so highly.

Many believed Shaw would develop into one of the best defenders in world football under the tutelage of the Portuguese.

But then Watford happened.

The Englishman put in a shocking performance during the 3-1 defeat at Vicarage Road, and was singled out for criticism by Mourinho in the immediate aftermath.

And since then the Portuguese has not held Shaw in high favour.

He has started just one Premier League game since that September defeat, and has not been named in a matchday squad since the end of October.

He did look solid in rare showings in the Europa League and both domestic cups, and fans are not happy as Mourinho continues to overlook him in the league.

In fact, Shaw’s continued outcasting has many believing he will be sold in the summer, after he was not named in the squad for Sunday’s clash against Leicester
