Despite a stop-start debut campaign, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal backs Luke Shaw to firmly establish his place in the side following a promising pre season.
“Luke Shaw is also a big talent”.
But he has the benefit that he’s an Englishman. With Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schinederlin joining Manchester United this summer we look at the potential United squad and find out whether or not they will be able to clinch the title this season.
“So I think that this shall be the season of Luke Shaw, that I believe”.
“In my other teams I was already, in my first year, a champion so I hope that we can manage that in three years’ time”.

Sergio Romero has just become Louis van Gaal’s fifth signing of the summer but the goalkeeper arrives with a “crazy” reputation.
“It was our own decision because I wanted to work hard and achieve something this season”.
