The Daily Express have claimed that Manchester United may be forced to change their summer transfer plans, and our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern want to know more.
The club have reportedly seen their move for Luke Shaw stall, and according to reports are set to turn their attentions to Barcelona left back Jordi Alba.
United are ready to offer £27million for the England international, and Shaw is keen on a move.
However the Saints are adamant they will not be forced into selling their prized assets, and claim a decision won’t be made until the appointment of a new manager is confirmed.
Southampton have seen manager Mauricio Pochettino move to Tottenham, whilst Rickie Lambert has joined Liverpool and Adam Lallana also remains a target for the Reds.
As one of our punters claims, it might be a little bit harder for the club to try and convince Alba that he should leave the Catalan giants and move to Manchester – and we still think that the move for Shaw is the one that remains likely to come off.
The left back revealed he has told Southampton of his desire to move to Old Trafford, whilst Chelsea are also keen on him.
We think a dream move will cap off a fantastic summer for the 18-year-old, who of course made the final cut for the England squad in Brazil.
