“I think Joe Hart deserves a mention because he is an unbelievable goalkeeper.
“When I left England and played with him, I was really impressed with his style and his goalkeeper, I think he is absolutely brilliant.

“I’ll chase after David in goal.”

Shaw added: “In defense… this is really hard!
“I have to join and then I will have two people in midfield – Rooney and Pogba and then one other … one striker.
“Of course, I played with Van Persie and he was an unbelievable finish.
“But I think I would say, because he’s always on the left with me and I like having him in front of me, I think I’ll have to say Rashy.”
