Luke Shaw has extended his stay at Manchester United after signing a new four-year contract that will keep him at the club until June 2027. The 26-year-old defender has had an impressive season under manager Erik ten Hag, making 36 appearances in all competitions, scoring once and assisting six times.
Shaw expressed his delight at extending his stay at the club, saying: “Nine years ago I signed for this amazing club, and I’m thrilled to be extending my stay. I’ve grown immensely since coming to Manchester all those years ago, both as a person and as a player; I know what is needed to succeed at a club like this. We’re at the beginning of our journey under the manager and his coaching staff. We’ve been successful already this season, but we want much more. There’s a great opportunity to create something special here, and I’m going to give everything to be part of that.”
The Englishman has featured 249 times for Manchester United since joining from Southampton in 2014 and has been a regular starter under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ten Hag this season, playing both at left-back and centre-back.
John Murtough, Manchester United’s football director, spoke highly of Shaw, saying: “Luke is a massively important player to the squad and has grown into one of the best defenders in the world. He has been at the club for nearly a decade and understands the expectations for success, and the hard work, commitment and high standards required to achieve it. He has added leadership to his other outstanding abilities, and we all look forward to seeing him in a Manchester United shirt for years to come.”
Shaw has earned 29 caps for England since making his debut in 2014, scoring three times including the opening goal in the Euro 2020 final against Italy. He will be hoping to continue his impressive form for both club and country in the years to come.
