Rumours of Luke Shaw’s imminent exit from Manchester United are not true according to the full-back’s agent.
The England international has been linked with an Old Trafford exit ever since percieved criticism from United manager Jose Mourinho came after an eayll season shock Premier League loss to Watford at Vicarage Road.
Injury and poor form has left the promising defender outside of Mourinho’s immediate first-team plans, with Matteo Darmian – usually a right-back – currently filling the void, though Mourinho also has Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo at his disposal in the same position.
But despite persistent reports linking him with a move, Shaw’s agent has moved to deny that the defender is unhappy at Old Trafford or that the club is unhappy with him.
‘I am angry with these reports suggesting Luke Shaw will leave Manchester United in the summer. I am angry at the irresponsible journalism,’ Jonathan Barnett said.
‘Luke Shaw is happy at Manchester United and, also, Manchester United are happy with him.’
Shaw has made just 13 appearances for United this season.
