United target Saints left-back.
If Luke Shaw does take the bait and make the switch to Manchester United in January, it will be a huge step up for the Southampton youngster.
According to Goal.com the 18-year-old is viewed as a long term replacement for Patrice Evra for the Premier League champions.
As manager David Moyes failed to bring in Leighton Baines, the highly rated youngster is believed to be next on the Scotsman’s list.
Chelsea and Arsenal are also interested in the talented left-back, who signed a new five-year deal with the Saints in July.
Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain both came through the Southampton academy and Arsene Wenger is known to be a fan of the England under-21s international.
Despite this United are still favourites to sign the prodigal young full-back.
Evra has been ever present for Manchester United since the Frenchman was signed from Monaco in 2006 and has developed into one of the world’s best left-backs.
Both Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand are world class centre-backs but are the wrong side of 30, so it will be Shaw’s relationship with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling that would determine the teenager’s success.
Fabio, who started the first Premier League game for United in nearly two years against Crystal Palace, is the only other bona-fide left-back in the squad.
The Brazilian’s lack of first team football would be an advantage to Shaw, should the defender decide to move to Manchester.
