Luke Shaw’s new contract makes him one of the highest-paid defenders in the entire world
Who is Luke Shaw?
Luke Shaw is a professional footballer who plays left back for Manchester United in the Premier League and also for the England national team.
He was born in London on July 12, 1995.
Growing up as an avid supporter of Chelsea, Shaw played for that club’s development center in Guildford at age eight and shortly afterwards joined the Southampton Academy.
He made his senior career debut with Southampton in September 2011 and played his first match in January 2012, soon establishing himself as one of the club’s top players. For his efforts, he was selected as left back for the 2013-2014 PFA Team of the Year while being shortlisted for the PFA Young Player of the Year award in 2014.
In June 2014, Shaw signed with Manchester United for what was at the time a world record transfer fee for a teenager.
He was shortlisted for the 2014 Golden Boy Award but suffered a fractured leg during a September 2015 Champions League match against PSV Eindhoven, causing him to miss nearly a year of play until returning in August 2016.
Shaw initially struggled under the club’s new manager Jose Mourinho after his arrival in 2016, but soon turned things around, winning over the Manchester United boss and recently signing a five-year contract with the club in October 2018.

Luke Shaw’s contract
On October 18, 2018, it was revealed that Shaw had signed a new five-year contract with Manchester United reportedly worth $65.4 million (£50m), or about $196,438 (£150,000) per week.
The deal makes Shaw one of the highest-paid defenders in professional football in the entire world.
It also represents a dramatic turnaround for the star left back. Shaw initially struggled under manager Jose Mourinho and was rumored to be on the way out after last season, but has since emerged as one of the club’s premier players.
Though Mourinho never held back his criticism of Shaw initially, Manchester United has now clearly decided that he should be a key component of the club for years to come.
