Paul Scholes expects Luke Shaw to leave Man United in the summer.

The Red Devils were 1-0 ahead and Shaw looked to have made no huge mistakes but Mourinho instead opted to pull the England defender from the action and replace him with Ashley Young at left-back.

Shaw has struggled at United ever since signing from Southampton in 2014 for a fee of up to £31m. (Fee per the BBC)

Further, it looks as though Shaw now has no place in Mourinho’s plans with the self-proclaimed special one heavily relying on Ashley Young at left-back this season after converting the winger to a regular full-back.

Shaw has made just seven appearances in the Premier League this season for United and Paul Scholes has not held back on his opinion on Shaw’s future.

Following Shaw’s early substitution form this evening’s fixture, Scholes stated that he expects the star to leave Old Trafford in the summer.

Scholes was a pundit for BT Sport and after the game stated, “”I think sometimes, managers get in their head that there’s a player not for them.”

“It’s a relationship that come the summer will end.”
