Jose Mourinho has made no secret of the fact he has never been entirely convinced by Luke Shaw.
The left-back has never really got back to the form he showed prior to breaking his leg in September 2015.
It’s fair to say his manager’s attitude can’t have done his confidence much good, and over the past two seasons, he has had to fight with Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo, and Daley Blind for his position.
On more than one occasion, Mourinho has publicly criticised him, telling a press conference last season that he only played well against Everton because he had been telling him exactly what to do.
Whatever that says about the Portuguese’s man-management, it has meant the England international’s future at Old Trafford has been uncertain.
According to the Guardian, the 22-year-old now fears his time at the club is up because of a renewed breakdown in relations with Mourinho.
In Shaw’s mind, he has worked hard to prove himself in training, yet his boss continues to question his attitude and fitness. With United openly pursuing new left-backs, it seems unlikely he’ll be given regular game time again.
While he’s not expected to move on in January, he has started to think about his next destination; as long as Mourinho is in charge, it’s difficult to see Shaw’s career reviving at the Theatre of Dreams.
