Jose Mourinho will address Luke Shaw’s snub of Chelsea for Manchester United in discussions with the left-back, according to The Sun.

The England international completed a £27m move to Louis van Gaal’s Red Devils from Southampton in 2014 despite interest from Chelsea.

Mourinho was in charge of the Blues during their attempts to sign the 21-year-old, who was a boyhood Chelsea supporter.

The Portuguese coach was named as Van Gaal’s successor at Old Trafford in May despite being sacked by the west London side in December.

According to a report in The Sun, Mourinho is planning to have clear-the-air talks with the young England defender to address any issues over Shaw’s decision to move to United ahead of Chelsea and comments made by the manager following the transfer.

Shaw spent most of the 2015/16 Premier League season sidelined through injury after the defender broke his leg in a 2-1 defeat by PSV Eindhoven in United’s opening Champions League group-stage fixture last term.
