The 21-year-old has had a difficult time at Old Trafford since arriving in 2014 from Southampton for £27million.

Jose Mourinho has questioned his attitude and commitment to play through pain, but United are ready to persevere and give him a chance.

A transfer away has been mooted with United targeting Celtic’s Kieran Tierney as a potential long-term solution on the left of their defence.
Although Shaw’s agent Jonathan Barnett has quashed rumours of unrest this week, saying: “He is happy at the club. Manchester United are very happy with him and he’s very happy at Manchester United.”
