Fresh off his best performance at EURO 2020, Luke Shaw is set to be offered a new Manchester United contract.
I’ll be honest. A couple of seasons ago, I thought Luke Shaw was absolutely finished at Manchester United. The performances weren’t there, while he was constantly in and out of the team under Jose Mourinho.
Perhaps the Baby Faced Assassin’s appointment is the main reason why Shaw is performing at the high levels he is right now, though no doubt seeing the back of the self-proclaimed Special One certainly helped.
Now, the 25-year-old United star is set to be offered a new contract following his stunning 2020/21 campaign. That’s according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Englishman has carried his fine form into the European Championships, playing a major role in both of England’s goals against Germany – sticking two fingers up to Mourinho in the process.
There’s no doubt the arrival of Alex Telles has definitely helped Shaw, though most of the credit has to go to the man himself. To come back from that seriously horrific leg injury has taken time, but the ex-Southampton man is now looking fully fit and confident again.
Shaw, who currently takes home £150,000-a-week (Sportrac), will no doubt be getting some sort of a weekly wage increase, with his current deal expiring in 2023.
Hopefully, United can tie him down in the long-term, perhaps a fresh five-year deal, giving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer one less starting XI problem to worry about as he looks to turn this squad into a real force once again.
Now for Shaw, it’s about finishing the Euro’s stong and coming back to Old Trafford looking to back up his excellent form.
