Barcelona are eyeing a shock loan move for Luke Shaw next season, according to The Sun.
The Manchester United left-back has failed to hold down a regular place under boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
Yet, incredibly, out-of- favour Shaw, 22, is first choice on Barca’s summer wishlist — for a season-long loan.
The Spanish giants have allocated cash for Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann and the continued payments for Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho.
Shaw has been constantly criticised in public by Mourinho.
The latest blast came after he was hooked at half-time in the 2-0 FA Cup win over Brighton last month, which was just his 15th game of the season.
He joined United from Southampton in the summer of 2014, having been named in the PFA Team of the Year.
And, after a slow first season at Old Trafford, hit the ground running with some impressive performances in his second campaign.
However, a sickening leg break cut short his season and he didn’t play again until Mourinho took over.
Shaw was billed as England’s future left-back but is almost certain to miss out on Gareth Southgate’s 23-man squad for Russia.
