Erik ten Hag to assess Luke Shaw before defender signs new deal

Incoming Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag is said to want to assess Luke Shaw before deciding on a new long-term left-back deal.

The 26-year-old’s contract at Old Trafford is set to expire next summer, but the club may extend it for another year until June 2024.

According to The Sun, a new £180,000-a-week deal at Man United has been discussed, but the defender will have to wait as Ten Hag wants to make the final decision on England’s international future.

According to the source, the new manager wants to keep a close eye on whatHe progressed next season before deciding whether it would be a long-running game at Old Trafford.

Since joining Manchester United in 2014, the former Southampton wonder has struggled with a string of injuries, and this season has been another contradiction for the defender.

In 2021-22 Shaw provided five assists in 27 games in all competitions, 20 of them in the Premier League.
