Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has said the squad is aiming to create a ‘family atmosphere’ for the new signing, while insisting that relations within the dressing room have ‘always been good’.
The club had claims of factions and divisions last season, with players constantly struggling to give their best on the pitch under managers.
This summer is billed as a fresh start for United under the guidance of new manager Eric ten Haag. So far, Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksson and Lisandro Martinez have been brought in and Shaw has revealed trying to stay close to the pitch with hopes of getting the better of him.
“I think it’s always been cool. We all get on really well and we’re like a family.” Shaw Told ManUtd.com When asked about Bond in the squad.
“Our goal is to create a family atmosphere and with that, everyone feels closer together and that makes things better on the pitch. There’s definitely a nice excitement and it’s been really enjoyable with the new manager and his ideas.”

United The pre-season got off to a really good start, with many players talking about the intensity of training under Ten Hag, and beating Liverpool, Melbourne Victory and Crystal Palace one after the other. But they lost a 2–0 lead against Aston Villa before losing against Atlético Madrid and were held by Rayo Vallecano to complete their pre-season schedule.
Ten Haag’s first competitive game in charge will take place on Sunday when Brighton travel to Old Trafford on Sunday. The clash would be a good early indicator of United’s early progress under the new boss, given that Brighton won 4-0 when the teams met as recently as May.
