Fans from both sides of the Manchester divide are surprised by what they’re hearing today, amidst suggestions Manchester City could land a big-name from their arch-rivals this summer.
Manchester United look increasingly likely to lose England international Luke Shaw during the close-season, as Jose Mourinho has once again criticised the full-back’s injury record, which our landlord believes has made the pair’s relationship intangible.
Still just 21, Shaw is tipped for a bright future and Manchester City’s search for improvements in the full-back area has led to the former Southampton man being linked with a move across the city – and the Citizens are joint-favourites for a deal.
Spurs’ own interest is likely to hinge on the future of current left-back Danny Rose, who has attracted interest from both Manchester sides, but it would be a big surprise to see the Red Devils sanction a sale to a Premier League rival.
Our landlord believes Shaw is destined to stay in the Premier League but is struggling to see who United would approve a sale to, as he feels the youngster can come back to haunt the Red Devils in the future.
Would Shaw be a good signing for Manchester City? Let us know in the comments below!
