Manchester United eye £45m double full-back swoop

Manchester United are ready to spend £45m to land Seamus Coleman and Luke Shaw from Everton and Southampton respectively at the end of the season, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The right and left sided defenders have been two of the Premier League’s standout performers this term, providing a number impressive displays.

David Moyes is known to be in the market for full-backs this summer, with Patrice Evra set to retire and a top class option on the opposite flank to the Frenchman having been missing for some time.

The Scot is said to have around £100m to spend, and is ready to dedicate £45m of that to snapping up Shaw and Coleman.

Shaw is believed to be his preferred target, with the need for a left-back urgent.

The 18-year-old is also wanted by Chelsea, but United are confident that they can lure him to the North West.

Coleman has also emerged as a candidate with the Irishman having been one of the surprise performers of the season so far.

The 25-year-old is rated at around £20m, and Moyes is hopeful that his former club will open to doing business with him.
