Manchester United’s Luke Shaw has often been linked with a move away from Manchester United, mostly due to some incredibly poor form.
However, according to the BBC’s Simon Stone, Shaw will not be sold by Jose Mourinho in January, meaning he’ll be kept at the club until next summer at the very least.
Luke Shaw might not be playing but won't be leaving in Jan. He needs to get his career going again.

This is a player who came to Old Trafford with high expectations placed upon his young shoulders. Shaw came out of the famous Southampton academy, and when he earned his move, he was playing at an extremely high level.
While at United, injuries certainly haven’t helped his case which, of course, has made it harder for Shaw to stay consistent.
But, when called upon, more often than not we’ve seen some sub-par performances from the left-back and that’s been a real shame.
To me, it feels as though Mourinho doesn’t fully trust the youngster, and eventually, he will leave. For now, though, Shaw has to keep grafting on the training field because who knows, a chance may come his way due to an injury to a teammate. Football is a funny old game at times…
