According to The Mirror, Luke Shaw has had a falling out with Jose Mourinho and Liverpool are monitoring the situation.
He might be a Manchester United player, but Liverpool are prepared to do anything to get their hands on a player who once played for Southampton.
We all know that Jose Mourinho is not the most considerate or compassionate man, but his treatment of Luke Shaw and Chris Smalling has revealed just how poor his man-management skills are.
Shaw is still working his way back to full fitness after a horrific double leg fracture during a Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven back in September last year. Chris Smalling, who now has a broken toe, was criticised by Mourinho for not playing through the pain and was made to have two injections to work through his discomfort. Scans later revealed that the centre-half has a broken toe and is unlikely to play for United before Christmas.
Mourinho’s treatment of Luke Shaw is particularly significant and casts a bad light on the Manchester United manager at a time when he can’t really afford any more slip ups.

I can confidently say that Shaw is almost entirely unlikely to pull on a Liverpool shirt and he is committed to working his way into Jose Mourinho’s good books. There hasn’t been a transfer between United and Liverpool for decades and I can guarantee that Shaw won’t be the one to cross the divide which seperates the two clubs.
Although Shaw has a close relationship with players like Adam Lallana, it’s almost inconceivable to imagine a player moving from United to Liverpool, or vice versa. Depsite this, Lallana has given his support to Shaw.
The former Southampton man said about Shaw, “He’s had a horrific leg injury. You don’t come back from that without being mentally and physically strong.”
Liverpool are top of the Premier League and have been prolific in front of goal but what is almost as impressive as the attacking ability that has been show, is James Milner’s seamless transition to left back. Klopp came in for a lot of criticism for not buying a new left back in the summer and his decision has been vindicated by Milner’s professionalism and hard work. Although, Milner isn’t a natural left back, with his proficiency at full back, there is no need to buy a new defender – least of all from Manchester United.
