Luke Shaw set for medical ahead of completing move to Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

Luke Shaw is due to have a medical at Carrington ‘very soon’ according to BBC Radio Solent and could complete his move to Manchester United in the coming days.

The 18-year-old has been subject to multiple bids from Manchester United this summer and it has been reported that both Shaw and United want to push a deal through quickly before Shaw goes on holiday.

At this stage, there is no word on what the fee for Shaw will be but a figure around the £30m mark is expected to be enough for Southampton to let Shaw move to Old Trafford.

Having completed the signing of Ander Herrera today, the news about Shaw has shown a real sign of intent from Ed Woodward to wrap up United’s major signings as quickly as possible this summer, something many fans thought wouldn’t happen.

From when it was announced, Herrera’s deal went through very quickly in a similar fashion to how United conducted their business under Sir Alex and David Gill and now that Shaw is set for a medical, there is a hope that a similar process can be repeated with Shaw.
