We’d love to know what was said between Jose Mourinho and Luke Shaw.
Maybe he pointed out that The Special One’s once luscious locks could do with a splash of Just For Men. Maybe he didn’t laugh at one of his jokes.
Whatever it was, the relationship between Shaw and Mourinho has thawed so much that not even an appearance on The Jeremy Kyle Show could sort it.
So where should Shaw go next? We’ve cooked up a couple of suggestions.
Shaw might well need to leave the country, so where better to go than our pals over in Germany?
Schalke are prolific in bringing through youngsters- think Leon Goretzka, Leroy Sane, May Mexer and Mesut Ozil- and could do with a long-term replacement for Sead Kolasinac.
Plus Shaw could swap Premier League horror stories with Franco Di Santo, Nabil Bentaleb and Baba Rahman.
We know, not Spain’s most prestigious club.
But following in the footsteps of Juan Pablo Sorin and Joan Capdevila requires a special player.
The city of Villarreal might only have a population of 50,000 but each and every one of them knows a decent left-back when they see one.
Roma’s credentials as an elite footballing rehab can’t be questioned, with Mohamed Salah the player latest to benefit from the Eternal City’s Roman air.
If you’re signed by Roma’s director of football Monchi you’re guaranteed to win at least one European and domestic trophy in the next three seasons.
Now time for a quick bit of trivia. Can you name Roma’s last English left-back? (Answer can be found in the below photo’s caption)
We’d urge Shaw to join Monaco just for the weather.
But if he’s after genuine reasons to move to the Riviera then look no further than Leonardo Jardim’s commitment to youth.
Straight swap with Fabinho anyone?
The Bundesliga is becoming the premier destination for England’s discarded youngsters.
Bayern Munich win the league every season so Shaw won’t have to worry about unnecessary expectations.
The only downside is that Leipzig are probably more hated in Germany than United are in England.
Let’s be serious for a second, Shaw is definitely going to leave United for Spurs this summer.
He’s English, young and a defender. Putty in Mauricio Pochettino’s hands.
After three years he’ll be joining Man City to be replaced by Ryan Sessegnon who will then replace him in another three years. The circle of life.
But if happiness is what Shaw is after then he may as well head back to where it all started.
Write the last four years off and move back to the south coast where he can see out his career fighting for free-kicks with James Ward-Prowse.
It’s what Nigel Adkins would have wanted.
