Jose Mourinho is prepared to let Luke Shaw leave Manchester United on loan in the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Manchester United boss is ready to let the 22-year-old quit Old Trafford in a temporary deal after he failed to impress the Red Devils manager.

The same report claims that Mourinho has fallen out with left-back Shaw and that the England international is not in his plans for the rest of the season.

Indeed, the story even suggests that the pair are no longer on speaking terms after having a row which has cast doubt over Shaw’s long-term future at Old Trafford.

Although Mourinho is said to be open to a loan move for Shaw, his long-term future is apparently in doubt, because the report states that the temporary move would only be to put the defender in the “shop window” ahead of a possible permanent move away from the club, presumably next summer.

Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League showdown against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as they look to gain revenge for their 4-0 mauling in the same fixture last season.
