There is something else for Manchester United fans to smile about here in the Football Transfer Tavern as BBC Sport report that they have now completed the signing of Luke Shaw.
The Southampton left back has signed in a deal worth £27 million which will rise to £31 million based on performances.
As one of our punters points out over a couple of perfectly poured pints, Shaw had also attracted interest from Chelsea – his boyhood club – but it is United who have landed the England international.
Some of the United fans in the tavern seem to think that it is a good idea for the club to have netted Shaw whilst Patrice Evra is still there.
The seasoned French left back will be able to give Shaw advice about playing at the highest level and for one of the very best clubs in the world.
Manchester United fans. Are you pleased to have netted Shaw? Is this a sign that van Gaal will be a serious contender in the transfer market this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
