But the Special One appears to be more "worried" about the Belgium worldwide rather than Shaw, as the Englishman's contract still contains an additional one-year clause, which is yet to be triggered by the Old Trafford club.

Defenders Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are expected to return for United.
"After Ander's words and the feelings of all the players, I don't need speak about the words".
Though, along with Fellaini, contracts of six other United stars are set to expire at the end of the campaign, including Luke Shaw.

Mourinho admitted Shaw's chances of a recall were remote.
"It shows dignity, it shows character and shows intelligence to know the reason why we lost the match".
"Eric, let's see", the coach warned.
He said: "I hope every time I have one day less than the opponent you ask the same question but I don't think it makes an impact because my feeling is the majority of the players who played that match are not going to play tomorrow". "[We have] one more training session".
