Manchester United are confident of signing Southampton left back Luke Shaw, according to press reports in the UK. United are understood to be ready to secure a £30million deal for the highly-rated defender, but Chelsea are also chasing the player.

According to The Daily Telegraph, “United are pressing ahead with attempts to recruit the players the Scot has identified as key targets. And United are confident of being able to persuade Southampton left-back Shaw to reject Chelsea, whom he supported as a boy, in favor of a move to Old ­Trafford to replace Patrice Evra.

“While Chelsea remain determined to sign the England defender, Shaw is understood to be concerned by a possible lack of regular football at Stamford Bridge due to the impressive form of César Azpilicueta and with Ashley Cole expected to sign a one-year contract extension to remain at the club.

“Evra’s anticipated departure from Old Trafford this summer, however, has left United in pressing need of a first-choice left-back and, at 18, Shaw is viewed as having the potential to fill the ­position for the next decade.”

    Why would Chelsea resign Cole who hasn’t been playing because Cesar has been so good. I think Chelsea will give Southampton Bertrand and cash for Shaw. Shaw on the left and Cesar back on the right.

  2. MeLikeSushi says:

    Azpilicueta is better then Shaw even when he’s out of position on the left, the Problem is Ivanovic that makes most of the errors in the Chelsea back-line moving Azpilicueta back to the Right with PVA or Ryan in the left will be better then spending £30mill on Shaw, if Jose can get Azpilicueta to that level im sure he can get PVA or Ryan bertrand to Shaws level!
