Shaw Wants New Man Utd♦ Contract; Laughs Off Weight Issues😏

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has hit back over criticism of his conditioning and says he is keen to earn a new deal.

The full-back has been in and out of the United side since he was signed in the summer of 2014 and is entering the last year of his contract.

However, he looks poised to figure at the start of the upcoming Premier League campaign, having started all three of United's games on their tour of the USA so far.

Shaw has been questioned over his conditioning and fitness for much of his time at United but says such criticism is misplaced.

"Of course people can say I'm fat, but I know my own body," said Shaw.

"I always look big because I'm bigger built and I have, you could say, a Wayne Rooney type of body."

United manager Jose Mourinho has criticised Shaw on occasion in the past but sent messages of support this summer as Shaw worked hard in Dubai.

"It was a breath of fresh air when he texted me," said Shaw. "I wasn't expecting it.

"I spoke to him and it was really positive. It made me feel confident about the upcoming season."

Shaw is now targeting a new United contract, adding: "You don't want to be in this situation (last year of a deal) but I know I have got the quality to become a (regular) Manchester United player.

"I know the club believe me. If they really wanted to, they could've cashed in. I'm going to fight for it this year and I want to be in that starting team."
