Luke Shaw

Newspapers have been reporting almost constantly for the past week that the club are on the verge of signing 18-year-old England international left-back Luke Shaw. The Southampton teen has had a mightily impressive campaign, earning himself a World Cup call-up ahead of Ashley Cole. With the exit of Patrice Evra seemingly inevitable, the left-back position will be a priority this summer for van Gaal. The club look set to make a bid in the region of £27 million for Shaw, which would make him one of the most expensive defenders of all time.
