Manchester United are looking to offload left-back Luke Shaw, with Jose Mourinho not convinced by the England international.

The club, in turn, wants to rope in Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti, and partner him with Eric Bailly.

Shaw has received criticism on numerous occasions by the Portuguese, and he feels that the club could cash in on him, with his contract set to expire in 2019.

As per Spanish outlet Don Balon, United are looking for a swap deal plus cash for Shaw in exchange for Umtiti.
