There is finally some good news for Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern courtesy of the Daily Star.
The publication claim that Luke Shaw may well be moving to the club – and the reason we know this is from Twitter of all places.
The England international left back favourited a tweet from a fan who asked about moving to Manchester United – and we think that this is a rather large hint.
The Southampton defender is one of the hottest properties in football, with both Chelsea and Manchester United keen on landing him.
As one of our punters notes, the fact that Shaw would do something so public shows that he clearly intends to leave the Saints, and United seem to be the number one destination for him.
There will still be some competition from Chelsea for the young star, but we think that United are leading the race and are willing to pay around £30 million for Shaw.
Our landlord moves over to the pool table and notes that should Shaw have a good World Cup, that price may well increase even further.
Is there anything in this ‘favourited’ post on Twitter or did Shaw’s mouse slip? Let us know your thoughts below.
