Manchester United Transfer Index: Luke Shaw

As part of my weekly Manchester United transfer series, I decided to look at the career of Luke Shaw at Manchester United, the present and whether or not there is a future for the young Englishman at Old Trafford beyond the Summer of 2018. It is easy to forget some of the more simpler issues - amidst the whole argument surrounding United's Premier League season with it dividing opinion among the fans, progress versus the lack of entertainment, possibility of …

The pre-season friendlies have well and truly begun and naturally, social media is littered with hot takes and tactical analyses of games that are played for the sole purpose of integrating new signings into the first team and building fitness ahead of the new season. Amidst the bedlam, United are still negotiating deals, the nature of some - unclear, yet others - pretty obvious, at this point in time.

United Warm Up Well for Wembley

United Warm Up Well for Wembley

It was a routine win against an ordinary side for Manchester United at Old Trafford. Yet, it is hard to remember the last time United enjoyed the amount of control on the way to a victory - so much so that David De Gea, usually in the thick of things in every result - good or bad, did not have to make a save that I can recall with admiration.

Can Manchester United cope without Rooney and De Gea?

Recent injuries to Manchester United’s captain and their star keeper have undoubtedly come as a big blow to Louis Van Gaal and his team. David De Gea was forced to leave the pitch before the Reds even started their match against FC Midtjylland in the Europea League due to a knee injury he picked up during the warm-up.

"Champions should be winning games like these" was the bottom-line of Van Gaal's post match presser where he looked, for the first time in his reign at United, all panicky and clearly irritated. For 90 minutes, Manchester United dominated the game, at least according to the Dutchman, yet failed again, to control the outcome.
