|Shaw's new deal shows Rice why it pays to be English in the Premier League
maxbet Being part of a team which starts the season with three wins, three defeats and a draw wouldn't normally be much of a record for any Manchester United player to be laying the foundations for a new contract but it's a measure of where United are, and the low base from which Luke Shaw started, that his performances in the club's worst start to a season in 26 years have been described in several parts as "impressive".
By comparison to what went before in the last four seasons of his United career, that description is technically correct but were he performing at his current level for a club lower down the Premier League food chain, it's unlikely that many of the top six would be desperate to sign him.
Instead, he has benefited from that wonderful football quirk where performing well for a few weeks at the right time can ensure a player earns a fortune maxbet for the best part of a decade. In Shaw's case, the timing of his revival saw him sign a new five-year contract worth in the region of €180,000 a week, an increase of about 50 per cent on the five-year deal he signed when moving from Southampton as an 18-year-old.
In that period, maxbet Shaw has been unlucky with injuries including a broken leg which ruled him out for a year but, even when fully fit, it's a stretch to argue that he has been, or has shown signs to become, a better player than he was when he signed. And yet, if he sees out this contract, he'll earn the best part of €50m in wages in nine years at the club.
It's a great time to be a reasonably good young player at Manchester United because the wage bar has been set so high by Alexis Sanchez and the hierarchy are terrified of allowing a player to leave that could go on to be a success elsewhere.
