Jose Mourinho suggests Luke Shaw revival has changed Manchester United's transfer plans

The thoughts of Manchester United's fans may have been on the possible arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal but the players stayed focused to beat Stoke City 3-0 in the Premier League at a rainy Old Trafford on Monday.

José Mourinho has signed a new contract at Manchester United.

The Red Devils boss has been heavily linked with a move for a left-back this month - Danny Rose, Ryan Sessegnon and Kieran Tierney have emerged as targets - but Shaw has made a significant impression on Mourinho recently.

Shaw, 22, was criticised last season by Mourinho, who said the defender was "a long way behind" his teammates but he has now started United's last five games, his best run in the team since August 2016.

Italian reporters Alessandro Onnis and Stefano Corti showed up in front of Manchester's Lowry Hotel to greet the Portuguese tactician and make him sign a Manchester United shirt.

This is the incredible moment an extremely strong gust of wind swept pedestrians off their feet in the Netherlands on Thursday. Spokesman Charlie Powell said: "In the last couple of hours the wind speeds have already started to come down significantly".

The 54-year-old is said to have the backing of United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward despite the gap now separating his United side from runaway Premier League leaders City. I think the decision to (retire) at the end of the season and not last week, I think is a good decision for the team and a good decision for him to finish playing football and not because he is injured or with some problem.

'Physically much better, mentally much stronger, tactically understanding the game much better and what we need in different phases and circumstances.

"I think the idea of the transfer market in mid-season, normally I say that is to help clubs that didn't work well in the summer", Mourinho said.

Scott Arfield could return to the Burnley line-up for Saturday's clash with Manchester United after shrugging off a hamstring strain sustained in the New Year's Day defeat to Liverpool.

They now sit second, 12 points behind local rivals Manchester City, and are in the UEFA Champions League last 16 and FA Cup fourth round.
