Reports: Shaw extended his United contract in the summer

Luke Shaw extended his Manchester United contract over the summer and will remain at the club until 2019, according to reports.

The left-back only made nine starts in the Premier League last season and in over three seasons has accumulated just the 48 appearances in all competitions.

Shaw has suffered badly with injury, having suffered a broken leg in a Champions League fixture against PSV in 2015 before Jose Mourinho arrived at Old Trafford.

While the ex-Southampton full-back underwent ankle surgery over this summer and only recently returned to full fitness.

The Sun claims that Shaw had his extra year in his current contract triggered when he returned to training with the Red Devils before the season.

His deal was set to run out at the end of this campaign and he will now remain at Old Trafford until 2019  – but Mourinho wants to see an improvement from his defender.

Speaking last week, he said: “Look, he doesn’t play for six months. I am not expecting him to arrive on Wednesday and to be man of the match or to be running up and down for 45 minutes.

“It’s just a process. He doesn’t play for a long, long time.

“You have other players in the Premier League that in this moment who are not starting matches and their managers just say ‘they’re not in the best conditions’.”
