Luke Shaw’s Manchester United contract could be extended with Alex Sandro too expensive

MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly considering a new contract for Luke Shaw.

The Manchester Evening News claims Jose Mourinho could yet hand the 22-year-old a reprieve as he enters the final year of his Old Trafford deal.

Shaw has failed to inspire since joining the Red Devils from Southampton in 2014, and some high-profile criticism from the Special One saw his stock plummet even further this season.

However, United’s failure to secure a new left-back in the close season means Shaw could end up staying put for at least another year.

Mourinho is believed to have identified Juventus supremo Alex Sandro as the man to solve his defensive conundrum.

But the Serie A champions will not let him go for any less than £52million, a price which United are reluctant to pay for a full-back.

Mourinho has also shown interest in Tottenham’s Danny Rose and Celtic’s Kieran Tierney, as well as Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.

But with Ashley Young impressing in the role last season – earning him a place in England’s World Cup starting XI – the Special One could be sticking with Shaw as back-up for the time being.

It means he could yet be rewarded with a new contract, meaning United won’t risk losing him for nothing in 2019.

But whether the ace fancies spending more time on the bench remains to be seen, with the likes of Leicester, Southampton and even Barcelona mentioned as potential suitors.
