Luke Shaw agrees new four-year contract with Manchester United

Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has agreed a new four-year contract with the club, reports The Athletic.

The Englishman’s original contract was due to expire in 2024.

Man United triggered the year-option clause in Shaw’s deal last December but were always keen to hand him a long-term deal.

The 27-year-old will remain at the Old Trafford club until 2027 and an official announcement is expected soon.

Shaw was close to leaving the Red Devils while Jose Mourinho was in charge.

He also struggled with long-term injuries but has overcome those setbacks and re-established himself as a key player.

The England international has become integral to the plans of manager Erik ten Hag.

Shaw has a goal and six assists in 35 games across all competitions this term.

He has played 170 Premier League games for Man United since he joined them from Southampton in 2014.

While he has scored just three goals, he has 16 assists and has been named Manchester United Players’ Player of the Year twice.

The two-time PFA Team of the Year member is set to spend a decade at the Theatre of Dreams club.

It is not a feat many players have achieved, and Shaw is doing plenty of things right.

Despite being a left-back, he has played as a centre-back a few times this season.

His experience, quality and versatility have come in handy for Man United.

The Red Devils won the Carabao Cup last month and are challenging for the FA Cup and Europa League.

Shaw will be eager to help the club win both trophies and more going forward.
