Manchester United have announced that Luke Shaw has signed a new long-term contract at the club.
The former Southampton left-back has had a turbulent few years since arriving at Manchester United in 2014, suffering a horrific leg-break during his second full season at the club, and has struggled to regain his form ever since.
His United career has looked to be dead and buried at times under Jose Mourinho, who has publicly berated the defender on numerous occasions and was rumoured to be on the lookout for a replacement earlier this year.
However, Shaw has started this season on fire, winning the clubs Player of the Month award on two occasions already, and with his contract due to expire next summer, United have decided to reward his form with a new contract, handing him a new four-and-a-half-year deal to keep him at Old Trafford until June 2023.
“Since I came to United, it’s been a whirlwind four years that have passed so quickly. I am very proud to sign my new contract and continue my stay at this great club,” Shaw told the Manchester United website.
“I want to thank everybody that has stood by me and shown me huge support – the management, my team-mates and the fans.
“I want to let everyone know that I will give everything I have to repay them and deliver success over the years to come. I’m still very young with a lot more to learn and I can’t wait to continue my progress under Jose Mourinho.”
