Shaw a target for Wolfsburg

  Shaw a target for Wolfsburg Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw is a target for Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, the Daily Mail reports. Shaw is now into the final year of his contract at Old Trafford and despite struggling for game time under Mourinho, it is believed that the 23-year-old has no desire to leave the club this summer. Wolfsburg are expressing an interest in signing the United defender this transfer window, but the England international will be a free agent next summer and free to talk to foreign clubs about a potential deal in January. Shaw has previously spoken about wanting to earn a new deal at United but will have his work cut out if he is to convince manager Jose Mourinho that he deserves a starting place in the side’s opening Premier League fixture against Leicester City next weekend. Mourinho is currently short on full-back options going into the start of the season, with Diego Dalot and Antonio Valencia both out injured. Want-away full-back Matteo Darmian has also been consistently linked with a move away from the club this summer with both Juventus and Napoli interested in gaining his signature.

Luke Shaw's first Manchester United goal in a strong showing against Leicester City was the best moment of the left-back's career to date.

Shaw has struggled during his time at United, suffering with serious injuries, inconsistent form and general fitness issues.

The former Southampton defender featured just 11 times in the Premier League last term and was publicly criticised on occasions by his manager, Jose Mourinho.

But, following a solid pre-season, Shaw impressed in Friday's 2-1 win over Leicester, scoring what proved to be the winning goal - his first in senior football - when he converted from close range in the 83rd minute.

"It was my first goal and that is all that was important, it doesn't matter how I scored," Shaw told Sky Sports.

"I was meant to come inside and I managed to get in front of him [his marker] and put it in. It's the best feeling I have had in my career.

"I have worked really hard over the pre-season and I had a lot of time to reflect, and work on what I needed to. Even tonight, I know I can be better and that is what I want to keep showing the manager.

"I don't want to speak too soon after one game, but I want to be up there with the best left-backs in the world.

"I have the foundations to do that here with the manager and my team-mates at Manchester United. I want to play for England and I want to be involved again.

"I don't think I was playing as well as I could with my attacking capabilities last season, and that's what I'm known for."
