Luke Shaw attracting interest from rivals as Manchester United stall on contract talks – Man United News And Transfer News

Luke Shaw could leave Manchester United and has been in talks with a number of Premier League clubs, including Everton.

The left back’s current contract expires at the end of the season, although the Red Devils have an option to extend the deal for another year.

They have yet to activate that clause and Shaw is understood to be interested in a new contract with new terms at Old Trafford.

That hasn’t stopped the England star from looking, though, and according to journalist Jacques Talbot, Shaw held talks with Leicester City and Everton over the summer.

Everton remain interested in the player and are monitoring the status of his contract.

Shaw’s preference would be to remain a United player, but given that he already earns around £170,000 a week, it’s hard to see the club offering him a huge raise in salary.

Man United are said to be concerned about his injury history, despite his better fitness levels this season.

Shaw has been at the club since 2014 but has only once managed to start 30 Premier League games in a single campaign, during the 2020/2021 season.

With Erik ten Hag bringing in Tyrell Malacia, there is a chance United could drop Shaw, particularly if his wage demands prove unreasonable.

The former Feyenoord defender has enjoyed a decent start to life in Manchester and is well suited to Erik ten Hag’s preferred style of play.

United also have 19-year-old Spaniard Álvaro Fernández on loan at Preston North End and the club have high hopes for the young left-back.

While Luke Shaw has been in fine form for the Red Devils and is likely to receive a contract offer, Man United are in a position to deal with his departure should the need arise.
