As one of Manchester United’s star performers of the season so far suffered a horrific leg break midweek, it now looks like Louis van Gaal will swoop for another young English defender.
Charlie Taylor, 21, currently plying his trade at Elland Road with Leeds United, is similar to Luke Shaw in age and position.
And today the rumours flooding into the boozy Transfer Tavern are that the Red Devils have concrete interest in the player currently playing his football up in Yorkshire.
The Daily Star are reporting that the Dutch manager at Old Trafford has sent scouts to watch the defender a few times now, and after being impressed with what he has seen will likely bid come the new year.
With former Southampton full-back, Luke Shaw, out for a considerable amount of time, the sooner defensive reinforcements arrive the better, say the usual punters turned pundits here in the Transfer Tavern!
What do you think United fans? Will you have to over pay? Would this be panic buy? Do you need him? Let us know below!
