United determined to land Shaw and will outbid Chelsea to do so

luke shaw 2Manchester United fans are happy here in the Football Transfer Tavern, after the claim from the Metro that the club are set to beat Chelsea to the signing of Luke Shaw.

The Southampton left back has been high on the wish list of most top clubs this summer, and it seems that Old Trafford will be his final destination.

Chelsea had been linked with Shaw but United are determined to get their man, with Louis van Gaal prepared to offer around £160,000 per week to the teenage full back.

One of our punters points out that for an 18-year-old to be on such a large amount of money, not to mention playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world, is some achievement and an offer that would be very hard for anyone to turn down.

Jose Mourinho and Chelsea are now reportedly out of the race, and look to be stepping up their pursuit of Atletico Madrid left back Filipe Luis, who is thought to be a top target for the Blues now.

Chelsea fans, is this a crazy amount of money to be offering to an 18 year old? Was Jose Mourinho right to leave United and their millions to it? Let us know your thoughts below.
