Manchester United line up new contract for star defender

Manchester United are set to reward Luke Shaw with a new contract after impressing with sparkling form over the last 12 months. The defender was named in last season’s Premier League Team of the Year and cemented his place as England’s number one left-back at this summer’s European Championship.

Alex Telles arrival last summer was seemingly to replace the former Southampton man but instead, Shaw took his game to another level and is now recognized as one of the best in the world.

Shaw has two years remaining on his current deal at the club but the club is now looking to offer him a long-term contract, according to reports.
