"It's a Euros and it's obviously a massive thing for me but I did give up towards about a month left," he said. "That's the best decision I could have made. I wish I was there, but I look back at it now as a good decision I didn't go."

Waiting for Shaw at United was Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese had tried on a couple of occasions to sign the player, going head to head with the Red Devils when he was Chelsea manager in 2014.

The Portuguese has clearly not held that against him, making him an instant first choice, but he did remind Shaw about it.

"We spoke about it. He said it to me first....I was just going to leave it," explained the former Southampton full-back.

Patrice Evra was leaving and Jose, at that time, had a solid back four that I knew he liked. So, even though Chelsea were much closer to my home, I felt United were the better choice for me.

"I was never focused on the money side at that point. It wasn't to do with wages, it was about football."

"He's been really good. His aura...his presence," he explained.

"Jose said it: he's always around the younger lads, bringing that experience in for everyone.

"For me to have someone like that with that experience, to talk to and learn from his experience... that's special.

"He's got good stories as well. Sitting at the dinner table, he tells a lot of jokes, but he wants the best from everyone as well. He's focused on himself and the team, but he wants to do the best he can and get the best out of us players, too.

"He doesn't miss anything. He sees it all and, if you're not putting the effort in, he'll tell you."
