According to two prominent Manchester United fanzines, Red Issue and United We Stand, the Red Devils have finalised a £27m deal for Southampton wonderkid Luke Shaw.
The fanzines are known for having sources within the club, so the news will no doubt please United supporters, but disappoint fans of Liverpool and Chelsea, who were also interested in the 18-year-old’s services.
Despite his young age, Shaw has been a fixture in Southampton’s side, and his form earned him his first senior England cap last month.
Veteran left-back Patrice Evra is expected to leave when his contract expires in the summer, meaning Shaw could arrive as his long-term successor. With his prodigious talent and young age, he could feasibly play for United for the next decade at least – which he’ll need to if he’s to pay back the mammoth price tag on his head.
