Jeremy Cross from the Daily Star has today told punters in the Football Transfer Tavern that he expects David Moyes to look st Southampton teenager Luke Shaw if he fails to lure Leighton Baines from Everton this summer.
Moyes is desperate to land England international left-back Baines and has made recruiting the 28-year-old a key feature in his transfer policy upon arriving at Old Trafford. However Moyes’ former boss Bill Kenwright has made it very clear that Baines is not for sale at any price this summer.
This could see United instead trying to sign 17-year-old starlet Shaw who successfully broke into the Saints first team under the tutorage of former boss Nigel Adkins and is now regarded as one if hottest young defensive talents in Europe.
United legend and former left back himself Denis Irwin is convinced United will move for Shaw this summer. He said: “I’ve heard a word that the new manager might have Luke Shaw at the top of his list.
“The teenage Southampton full-back is the latest in a long line of prodigies from that club’s excellent youth system.”
The England Under-21 international will be available for around £10 million although Saints could hold out for more as they look to cash in on another of their fine academy products.
