Man United turn to shock £15m Championship star in a bid to cover Luke Shaw

A shock contender to help solve Manchester United’s problems at left-back has emerged in the shape of Hull City ace Andy Robertson, report the Sun.

The berth has proved to be somewhat of a problem position for Louis van Gaal during the course of his almost two year tenure, with a horrific leg break to Luke Shaw proving be a major blow.

Though young Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has impressed, the likes of Marcos Rojo have looked extremely suspect performing the role.

Now, the Red Devils are said to have turned their attentions to the second tier of English football in a bid to help alleviate at least some of the problems the Dutchman has to deal with.

Robertson has been hugely impressive for the Tigers ever since his move from Dundee United, despite playing in their side that was relegated from the Premier League last term.

Thought to be valued at around £15m, the Scottish international is reportedly well on the radar of the Manchester giants heading into the summer transfer market.
