Luke Shaw is already looking forward to being back in action for Manchester United next season as the defender headed back to his club in preparation for pre-season training.

The England defender has been enjoying a well-earned summer break after helping Louis van Gaal’s side wrap up a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League in the Dutchman’s first season in charge at the club.

However, Shaw has already turned his attentions to next season and helping the Red Devils mount a Premier League title challenge if his latest social media post is anything to go by.

Shaw shared the picture above of himself on his way back to Manchester on his Instagram account and wrote: “Back to Manchester, looking forward to being back for pre-season.”

Shaw has made 16 Premier League appearances for United since his transfer to the club from Southampton last summer. He also made four appearances for Van Gaal’s men in the FA Cup before they were knocked out by Arsenal in the quarter-finals.
