With a good performance against Italy on Sunday night, as well as a goal in the opening minutes, Luke Shaw continued his resurgence and showed many why he is the starter under both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United and Gareth Southgate for England.

In fact, his form at club level caused new signing Alex Telles to have to sit on the bench more often than not last season, which is why there have been a number of transfer stories surrounding the Brazilian over the past few months.

They had been relatively quiet of late, but Calciomercato rekindle everything by publishing an article on Monday claiming the Manchester United defender was offered to AS Roma, who are without Leonardo Spinazzola for the foreseeable future.

The Italian website claim ‘an intermerdiary talked about him with the Roma leadership and José Mourinho wouldn’t mind the candidacy’.

That being said, it was also pointed out the Serie A side ‘would only evaluate a loan with the right of redemption’, as he would only provide competition for Riccardo Calafiori until Spinazzola recovers from his Achilles injury.

Something to keep in mind, even if it seems unlikely that Manchester United would let such a good squad depth option leave when so many games will need to be played next year.
