Solskjaer to favour Williams for left-back role


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly told Luke Shaw that he won’t be regarded as the first-choice left-back on his return from a hamstring problem.

The England international has sustained numerous injuries since his move to Old Trafford five years ago and he has recently recovered from a muscular problem picked up in August.

During Shaw’s absence this term, Ashley Young and club graduate Brandon Williams have regularly featured in his position and the latter has received plenty of plaudits for his displays.

According to The Mirror, Solskjaer has informed Shaw that Williams has now established himself with the first-team squad and the club graduate is ahead of him in the pecking order for the left-back role.

Shaw has been included in the travelling squad to face Astana in the Europa League on Thursday. The squad comprises of 14 teenagers and manager Solskjaer has promised to offer gametime to most of them with qualification to the knockouts already sealed.

Manchester United are reportedly weighing up an approach to sign Ben Chilwell from Leicester City as they aim to bolster the left side of the defence.

The 22-year-old, who has also been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea, has made close to 100 appearances for the Foxes since his debut during the 2015/16 season.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are said to hold a keen interest in signing the England international with Luke Shaw yet to establish himself as the first-choice left-back.

Shaw managed to stay injury free for most of the previous season where he was named the club’s Player of the Year but that has not been the case this term.

The former Southampton graduate has already missed nine games this season with a hamstring problem and reports indicate that his time with the club could be coming to an end.

Aside from Chilwell, the Red Devils are also said to hold an interest in compatriot James Maddison and a double swoop could be on the cards next year.
