Manchester United's Shaw dismisses criticism over fitness and conditioning

Manchester United's Shaw dismisses criticism over fitness and conditioning

He wants to stay at Old Trafford, but only if he is playing games.

So I don't think I'd sign a new deal right now.

"Of course people can say I'm fat, but I know my own body", said Shaw.

Ahead of the annual International Champions Cup - where Mourinho's side take on the likes of AC Milan and Real Madrid - before the all-important opening game against Leicester City on the 9th of August, the Red Devils look not just unprepared but also quite unwilling to prepare.

Mourinho confirmed he will allow Darmian to leave the club providing they receive a suitable offer, but reserved praise for the 28-year-old.

"One thing is what I would like, but another thing is what is going to happen", said a dejected Mourinho in an ESPN interview - nearly foreseeing life after August 9th, beyond which, according to the new rule, Premier League teams can not sign new players.

Martial has been strongly linked with a move away from the club after his agent claimed he wanted a move, with the France worldwide reported to have a strained relationship with Mourinho.

"When a man is going to be a father, in this case for the second time, and he decides that it's very important for him to go, I think nobody has the right to stop him to go".

"I spoke with the manager about a week after the holidays". If they really wanted to they could've cashed in.

"F**k, I've just opened it and I must look so weird now". I can't keep sitting on the bench and let my life go on, smoking a cigar, not doing anything.

'I want to play football. I left it a little bit to reply because I didn't want to seem too eager. I'm hoping it works out here and I play this season here.

Louis van Gaal, Mourinho's predecessor then branded Shaw as overweight, during their 2014 summer tour to the US.

He has been singled out for criticism a number of times by Mourinho, particularly after being hooked at half time in an FA Cup tie against Brighton in March.

"I know the club believe me". I was very upset but he only does stuff like that because he knows what I can do. I was in Dubai and he texted me and we had a really good chat, it made me feel really confident about the upcoming season and that's why I worked really hard.
