Shaw is awaiting a bumper new £180,000-a-week deal
EXCLUSIVE: Luke Shaw will wait for a new £180,000-a-week Old Trafford contract until his new manager gives the go-ahead, written JOSHUA MBU.
Shaw, 26, has just one season left on his current deal and so far Manchester United bosses have been in no rush to offer an extension.
Instead, United insiders insist the club will trigger their 12-month option to keep the left until 2024.
And that will give ten Hag time to make an informed decision on whether the defender can be part of his longer-term plans.
Shaw has had a stop-start career at Old Trafford since signing for £32m from Southampton in 2014.
The sparkling spells were offset by serious injuries and a battle to win over former boss Jose Mourinho.
And although he was back to his best last season, Ten Hag is willing to assess him well before committing to a long-term decision.
United have a similar view of Brazilian midfielder Fred, 29, although they would be more willing to listen to offers this summer at the right price.
