The Kangaroos have offered Goldstein a two-year deal with an option for a third season to keep him as their lead ruckman.
The best-and-fairest-winner will meet with his manager over the next week for crucial talks about his future.
“I’m not sure how the conversation has gone with the footy club and hopefully we are getting closer to something,” Goldstein told Triple M earlier this week.
“Tommy (my manager) is one of the best operators, so he will gather all of the facts that I need, and when he has got enough stuff he will present it to me. But until then he has said to me focus on footy and let him take care of everything else.”
Shaw said he would be “worried” if Goldstein delayed his decision further.
“I’m looking for him to be as comfortable as he can and hopefully he signs,” the coach said.
Since taking over as caretaker coach from Brad Scott in round 11, Shaw has impressed the club. He won the full-time gig last week and led his side to victory against Hawthorn on Friday.
This week, the Kangaroos are taking on Geelong at GMHBA Stadium, and Shaw said he was expecting a “really good performance” from the Cats after their costly defeat on the weekend to Fremantle.
“I think they’ll come out firing back at home,” he said.
“They didn’t have a great weekend … so I’m expecting a really good performance from them and a really tough one for us.”
