The Englishman enjoyed a positive run of games in December, leading to Jose Mourinho branding him as one of the best left-backs in Europe, but has since only made four starts.
He was once again publicly chastised by Jose Mourinho in March – a tirade many senior players reportedly condemned – and several reports have consequently claimed that he will seek a new club in the summer.
But Shaw has implied that he plans to remain at Old Trafford by noting how Carrick, despite not playing, would remain close to the Man United squad next season.
You’ll struggle to find a bad word to say about you @carras16 You have been an amazing teammate and captain to us! I’m happy this isn’t goodbye! The manager couldn’t of said it better, A big player is leaving but a big man is staying. ❤️
Mourinho’s plans to invest in another left-back in the summer, with talk surrounding a move for Alex Sandro – who has reportedly asked Juventus chiefs to grant him a move – intensifying over the last week or so, and stated last week that he wanted Ashley Young to be heavily involved in his team next season.
This appears to leave Shaw, once again, with very few opportunities. And you just get the feeling that the Englishman, following four frustrating campaigns at Old Trafford, surely needs to look elsewhere to reinvigorate his career.
