5 players who need to leave Manchester United to progress
A club like Manchester United will always have a big squad and some of the players in the squad will rarely get their chances to play unless there are injuries and a cramped schedule. These footballers will certainly make the starting eleven in most of the European sides but at Manchester United, they are warming the bench.
Because of frequent changes in the managerial role at United, some of the players may not adapt to the style of play by the new managers. They obviously deserve to have more game time and leaving Manchester United will give them a platform to resurrect their careers.
Let's take a closer look at those 5 names:
#5 Luke Shaw
The former Southampton man traded clubs in a big money deal during the summer of 2014 when Louis van Gaal took charge at Manchester United. He was destined for greatness at United but things did not go according to his plan for him.
Shaw got some decent game time in his first season at United where he showed glimpses of his potential. But a broken leg killed all the momentum, allowing him to play only 5 league games in 2015/16.
When Mourinho took charge, he was always aware of Shaw's potential and expected the fullback to have a long-term future at the club. He wanted Shaw to put in extra hours at the training ground and get back into shape. Shaw got minutes late in the season but was never a regular.
Beginning of this season, Mourinho has told him that he still has work to do before winning a regular place in the team. Mourinho always demands a high work rate from his fullbacks and was not impressed with Shaw. Shaw made just a couple of cameo appearance for United this season and is expected to leave when the transfer window reopens.
He is still a player that most top managers will be happy to play and a move away from United is what he needs to get back to his best.
