Luke Shaw’s agent has denied suggestions that the left-back could leave Old Trafford.
The 21-year-old Englishman has played only 13 times since Jose Mourinho’s arrival in Manchester last summer and has not appeared for the Red Devils since November 30th.
Reports are claiming that United as looking to offload Shaw in the summer, but his representative Jonathan Barnett claims there is no truth to these rumours.
“He is happy at the club, Manchester United are very happy with him and he’s very happy at Manchester United.”
Shaw joined United from Southampton for 27m in June 2014, brought into the club by Louis van Gaal, but fell under criticism from the Dutchman during a pre-season tour in America over his physical condition.
He was reportedly placed on a personal fitness program by the ex-United boss, and made his debut for them in a 2-1 victory over West Ham in September of that year.
He then unfortunately suffered a double leg break in a Champions League game game against PSV Eindhoven, which ruled him out for the entire rest of the 2015-16 season.
He eventually returned to action in August, and played in Mourinho’s first five games in charge of Manchester United, it has since found it difficult to earn game time due to the presence of Matteo Darmian, who is seen as Mourinho’s first choice left-back.
Shaw grew up as a Chelsea fan during his childhood, and even played at the clubs development centre at the age of eight, but was not offered a place – a surprising fact considering he later went on to sign for the Red side of Manchester.
United fans will be hopeful Shaw remains with the club with the aim of improving his game and becoming a long-term solution in the back line of United – young, English, and full of potential – if Shaw does indeed remain with the club, he may be able to make his stamp in history – or perhaps he is destined to do this elsewhere.
