Manchester United defender Luke Shaw suffers a breakdown in relationship with Jose Mourinho as they are no longer on talking terms, which could leave his Old Trafford career in jeopardy according to a report.

Shaw returned from a foot injury in the latter stages of August but has only made two substitute appearances for Manchester United during the 2017-18 season with the last of those came on Tuesday night as the England international turned out for the final three minutes of the 2-0 win at Swansea City in the Carabao Cup.

According to The Times claims that the 22-year-old is no longer on speaking terms with Mourinho, suggesting that his career with the perennial champions is finished after the defender was heavily criticised by Portuguese boss for his lack of commitment last season.

Despite United's problems at the left-back position, Shaw is struggling for game time, as Mourinho has picked Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind, and Marcos Rojo in left-back options ahead of former Southampton who is yet to feature in the Premier League this term.

Shaw is out of contract at the end of the season, but Manchester United are likely to trigger a 12-month extension clause in his deal.
