Luke Shaw’s incredible form is set to be rewarded with a new Man United contract.
Manchester United’s up-turn in form recently has been a pleasure to witness. You’d like to think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are still heading in that positive direction.
One of the main reasons behind that is the Baby Faced Assassin’s ability to get the maximum out of his players. Perhaps the biggest beneficiary of that is Luke Shaw.
Now, Shaw is set to be rewarded for that form, by being handed a new contract. His current terms expire in 2023, though talks are set to open in the coming months.
The story comes from the Daily Mail, who state that the 26-year-old United star is viewed as a ‘key part of a project’, to get the Old Trafford club challenging for major honours again.
I don’t say this lightly but right now, Shaw is amongst the best players in the world in his position. He had a superb 2020/21 season at domestic level, before backing that up with an incredible EURO 2020 over the summer.
Gone are the days where Shaw looked lacking in confidence following that horrific leg injury. Now, we’re looking at a man back to his brilliant best – and the least he deserves is a new deal here in Manchester.
Shaw should be amongst the regular first-team members who make their training return today, following his time off on holiday.
With Alex Telles out injured, Shaw is absolutely going to be needed for our Premier League opener against Leeds United in just under a fortnights’ time.
In an ideal world, his contract will all be sewn up before the serious actions kicks off but right now, that looks unlikely.
