Several media outlets have already confirmed United’s capture of Southampton wonderkid Luke Shaw, but until the deal is officially announced, it is not a certainty. Louis van Gaal and co must do all they can to sign the talented left-back that’ll give them the much needed pace and technical ability down the left flank.
It is expected that Shaw will replace the potentially departing Patrice Evra as a like-for-like replacement. The 18-year-old is quick, and an extremely good dribbler. And in United’s possession based game, having an extra outlet will be extremely valuable.
Reports suggest that Southampton have already accepted a massive £27m bid from United along with agreeing personal terms with Shaw. Red Devils fans will be hoping these reports are true.
