Shaw fuels Manchester United transfer speculation by following United players on Twitter

by Sam Peoples

Luke Shaw has poured petrol on speculation that he is set to join Manchester United by following Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones and Rio Ferdinand on Twitter.

This is in no way shape or form confirmation that Shaw’s move to Old Trafford is imminent but in the world of modern footballers, you’d be foolish to think Shaw didn’t know exactly what he was doing.

Of course, following his England team-mates is nothing new given that he follows the likes of Gary Cahill and Ross Barkley but Shaw is a social media savvy footballer and knows full well the reaction that following the United trio would cause.


Reports have always suggested that Shaw to United is effectively a done deal that would be confirmed after the World Cup but United fans are hoping that a deal can be struck before the tournament starts.

Roy Hodgson has confirmed that Shaw won’t take part in England’s friendly against Peru tomorrow, so maybe he’ll be on the 9.06 up to Manchester Piccadilly…
