Shaw reveals what he expects from United after penning new five-year deal

Luke Shaw signed a new five-year deal and claimed Manchester United can hit the top again with the "scary" talent within their squad.

Shaw committed his future to United by signing a new five-year deal worth £195,000-a-week, which will keep him with the Reds until 2023, with the option of a further year.

After tying Shaw down to a new deal, United will now look to do the same with goalkeeper David De Gea and forward Anthony Martial, both of whom are poised to commit to new long-term contracts.

Left-back Shaw, who has endured a tough four years at United, including suffering a double leg break and being publicly criticised by boss Jose Mourinho and predecessor Louis van Gaal, reckons the Reds are on the way back to the top.

“Everyone knows how big Manchester United is, and all the success we’ve had in the years gone by," said Shaw.

“Personally, I think it’s only a matter of time before the success is going to come back. I see the team we have here, we have an amazing group of players and the talent we have is scary.

“There are a lot of young lads here who are hungry for trophies and that’s only good for the team, the club and the fans too."

Shaw looked to be on his way out of United after falling foul of Mourinho, but he worked hard over the summer on his form and fitness and has re-established himself as United’s first-choice left-back.

“It’s been an odd few years for me," said Shaw. "There have been ups and downs, but now it’s all about looking forward and how much I can help the team become a success again.

“If you looked at my situation for the last year and a bit, you would have thought this could have been kind of impossible, but I worked hard, I wanted to be here and I wanted to make sure my future was here to help this club.

“I knew how important this season was going to be, especially the start of it, coming into the last year of my contract and I’m really happy to be in this form.

“Over the pre-season I was working really hard to make sure I gave myself the best opportunity to be able to put myself in the team. I’ve done that but the hard work isn’t over.

“I want to stay in the team now, I want to keep the shirt, so I keep going, keep focused, keep concentrated. That’s what I’m going to be doing."
