Manchester United submit £27 million bid for Southampton’s Luke Shaw

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United have wasted no time following the end of the season and have submitted a £27 million bid for Southampton’s Luke Shaw, according to Sky Sports.

The 18-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford all year long as he is considered one of the best long term replacements for Patrice Evra who may leave United this summer.

Although £27 million seems a lot for a player who has only played one full season in the Premier League, it would be a bargain if he ended up being United’s left-back for over a decade in much the same fashion as Rio Ferdinand’s and Wayne Rooney‘s turned out being worth every penny.

After the season we’ve had, the debacle of last summer and the World Cup around the corner, moving fast in this transfer window is essential and by the sounds of it we are doing precisely that.
