Duncan Castles provides latest Man United transfer update on Luke Shaw
The Sunday Times reporter discusses Luke Shaw's future at Manchester United
Manchester United could offer Luke Shaw a new contract this summer despite speculation surrounding his future, Duncan Castles has claimed.
The Red Devils defender has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in Jose Mourinho’s team over the past 24 months.
Shaw has been the subject of criticism from the Portuguese head coach due to his performances on the pitch and in training.
The 22-year-old made just eight starts and three substitute appearances in the Premier League last season to highlight his struggles.
Shaw has been linked with a potential move to Manchester United’s title rivals Tottenham Hotspur to link up with ex-manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Reports this week suggested that Shaw could have a future at Manchester United despite having a mere 12 months to run on his £100,000-a-week deal.
Sunday Times reporter Castles believes the England international could get a new deal at the 20-time English champions.
“It doesn’t surprise me Man United would be briefing the player could be offered a new contract because he is still an employee, he has one year left on his current contract and he is a sellable asset,” Castles told the Transfer Window podcast.
Shaw moved to Manchester United in a £27m deal from Southampton in the 2014 summer transfer window.
He made a steady start under Mourinho’s predecessor Louis van Gaal before he suffered a leg break in 2-1 loss to PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League in September 2015.
