Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has doubts over 24-year-old’s future at Man United: report

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is understood to have concerns over the long-term future of Luke Shaw following the breakthrough of young graduate Brandon Williams this season.

Shaw has been with the club for more than five years but he has managed just 75 top-flight appearances with as many as 10 injuries hampering his progress with the first team.

According to The Express, Solskjaer has doubts over the left-back’s injury record and he is concerned that the 24-year-old does not have the physical attributes to carry out his instructions on the field.

It is added that the England international is no longer regarded as the first-choice left-back and he could be shown the exit door during next summer’s transfer window.

Shaw had a positive campaign with the Red Devils last term where he was able to remain relatively injury-free and made 40 appearances for the club across all competitions.

His efforts saw him handed with the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award but all of this seems a distant memory as he has missed most of the current campaign with a hamstring problem.

Shaw played his first game since August in the midweek Europa League clash against Astana and he managed to grab an assist and missed out on another after Tahith Chong’s sublime miss.

Still, he was definitely short of match fitness for the away trip and defensively, he was not at his best and should have closed down the opponent in the lead up to Bernard’s own goal in the 2-1 defeat.
