Earlier today, rumours from the Independent newspaper surfaced, suggesting that Luke Shaw’s days at Manchester United could well be numbered. They believe that Jose Mourinho is ready to listen to offers for the 21-year-old left-back, but now there has been some contrasting reports.
His agent has come out in support of the Englishman and claimed that Luke Shaw is happy at Manchester United, whilst adding that he is ‘angry’ at the poor journalism…
The Manchester United man hasn’t featured since the end of November, and that is largely due to some sort of injury which he had been carrying throughout that period. However now, it looks as though he is back in training.
“I am angry with these reports suggesting Luke Shaw will leave Manchester United in the summer. I am angry at the irresponsible journalism. Luke Shaw is happy at Manchester United and also, Manchester United are happy with him,” Luke Shaw’s agent told the IBTimes.
It’s always great when rumours like this get quashed right at the source, and his agent speaking to the media like this is absolutely the perfect response. His agent has 100% done the right thing here, and it’s great to read that Manchester United are happy with the player as well, despite the fact that he hasn’t really been playing recently.
That horrible injury he suffered just over a year ago now would’ve seriously hampered him both mentally and physically, and that will take some time to get over completely. Hopefully, he’ll get given a chance to prove his worth on the field sometime soon.
