England international Luke Shaw is willing to call quits on his Manchester United career following a frustrating time under Jose Mourinho this season.



The 21-year-old has made just two starts for the Red Devils since the turn of the year with manager Jose Mourinho prepared to stick with the likes of Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian and sometimes Ashley Young for the left-back role.

According to The Mirror, the former Southampton graduate will push for a move away from Old Trafford this summer as he feels a new challenge would be the best for his career.

The likes of Stoke City and Crystal Palace have been credited with an interest in the young full-back, and Mourinho could favour a temporary loan deal unless the club receive the entire £31.5m fee paid to Southampton in 2014.

Shaw is also understood to be a transfer target for Championship leaders Newcastle United whose manager Rafael Benitez is keen to spend big upon the club's return to the top flight.
