Shaw feels Man United career is ‘effectively over’ – report

Luke Shaw believes that his Manchester United career is ‘effectively over,’ according to The Guardian.

Shaw has struggled to break into the United first team under Jose Mourinho since the Portuguese’s appointment as manager in summer 2016.

The left-back started the club’s first five Premier League games of last season, but a combination of injuries, a struggle for form and Mourinho’s exacting methods have seen him fall out of favour.

He has started four Premier League games since last September, and has just 47 minutes of football to his name in this campaign.

The England international played the entire second half of a Carabao Cup victory over Burton last month, but was afforded just three minutes against Swansea in the fourth round.

According to The Guardian, that latest blow has convinced Shaw that his career at Old Trafford is ‘effectively over’.

Jamie Jackson writes: ‘Mourinho is understood to be unhappy with Shaw’s attitude, despite the player believing he has done everything possible to prove himself. The 22-year-old fears he will not be given a meaningful first-team chance again.’

Shaw is now ‘considering his options’, and is open to leaving the club. A January move is ‘unlikely’, however.
