Manchester United are reportedly preparing a new contract for Luke Shaw after his dramatic turnaround in becoming one of the world’s best left-backs.
He is currently playing for England at Euro 2020 and you would be hard pushed to find a better left-back at the tournament. Italy’s Leonardo Spinazzola could be a close second but his summer came to end as he ruptured an Achilles tendon in his country’s 2-1 quarter-final win over Belgium.
This form comes off the back of an impressive 18 months for United, which already had us calling him the best left-back that the Premier League has to offer. Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he’s become five times the player he was under Jose Mourinho.
On Shaw’s currently deal there is a further optional year that the club can trigger on top of the two years that remain. However, Fabrizio Romano claims the left-back could be offered a new deal in the next few months as he is seen as a key part of the project to get United challenging for the Premier League title after going 8-years without winning it.
Manchester United will offer Luke Shaw a new contract in the next months. He’s considered a key player and Solskjaer wants Luke to be 100% involved in the project. 🔴 #MUFC
There’s still nothing agreed with AC Milan for Diogo Dalot. Trippier price tag from Atleti – always €40m.

Shaw made 47 appearances for United last season as he provided six assists and one goal.
On top of that, Romano adds that Kieran Trippier is being priced at €40m by Atletico Madrid, who are under absolute no pressure to sell.
