Chelsea join chase for Manchester United's Luke Shaw

Chelsea join chase for Manchester United's Luke Shaw

The breakdown in relationship between Jose Mourinho and Luke Shaw has not gone unnoticed among the player's Manchester United teammates.

"Obviously the result against Sevilla felt like a defining moment of the season, but I think that if Man United won that game everyone would be looking at the season completely differently".

Shaw was hauled off at half time in United's 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final win over Brighton on Saturday.

While the club continue to be linked with nearly every high profile name in Europe, it's unclear just yet as to who Mourinho is really after.

"There is a difference between the courageous, who want to be there at any cost, and the ones for whom a little pain can make a difference", said Mourinho.

"A few of the guys, I saw them scared to play".

"So I am not happy with the performance at all".

United's boss is under severe pressure, with critics convinced that he's finished at the top level, but while he makes mistakes, it's worth remembering that, seven days ago, his stock was as high as it had ever been since he joined United.

While Mourinho has made his frustrations with the defender clear, many feel he still has a bright career ahead of him. It's a tactical quirk of which we know Mourinho is proud, because he's always telling us about it, in both bad moments and good.

Shaw was once regarded as one of the most promising young defenders in England after he broke into the Southampton team. "I think we deserved to win because I think the game was in control for the majority, we scored two and they didn't score, but we didn't play as I prepared the team to play", he told BT Sport.

"The ideal Manchester United player is the one that has quality and personality and is consistent on that".

He said on the BBC: "Well you hope they'll respond, but some players could go, "I'm not having that".

"But give him 25 metres and you have to press".

"What is important is that everyone is available to play and the team is not affected by the names".

Former Southampton youth academy director Jason Dodd has admitted how Shaw can be hard work and needs constant pushing. If he is playing well, might that be because he is the focal point of the whole system - the target of all the long balls - and therefore has many chances to get involved and influence the game? Mourinho expects you to put it in every session and that is an area where Luke will struggle'.
