Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he has no intention of selling Luke Shaw in the summer despite the defender struggling to break into the Manchester United starting XI during the current campaign. The England international returned from a long-term injury absence at the start of the campaign, but has struggled for game time making just six starts in the Premier League. Shaw has struggled with minor fitness issues during the course of the campaign, but he has now been back in full training for over a month but is yet to get a game in the league.
After missing three months with injury, Real Madrid star Gareth Bale returned in style on Saturday against Espanyol. Just 12 minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute, the Welsh attacker scored a fine goal on the counter to give Real Madrid a 2-0 lead. Take a look: Well, he sure looks fit with that effort. And it’s good timing for Real Madrid to get him back. In first place in La Liga and with one foot into the quarterfinals of the Champions League, Real gets one of the world’s best goal scorers back, which boosts the attack big time and takes pressure off Cristiano Ronaldo. And if he can score more goals like this, there is no reason why Real can’t win both La Liga and UCL.
