Luke Shaw is reportedly ready to run down his Man United contract and leave the club for free in the summer of 2019.

The defender has been at Old Trafford since 2014, but has endured a nightmare spell at the club.

Having once been tipped to become the best left-back in England and one of the best in the world, Shaw has failed to live up to his billing despite his obvious potential.

This has been down to a number of reasons, with fitness struggles and niggling injuries hampering his time at the club.
