United want to bring in Everton’s Coleman and Southampton’s Shaw.
In a bid to improve their current form Manchester United are preparing a huge £45m double bid for Everton’s Seamus Coleman and Luke Shaw of Southampton, according to the Daily Star.
The Premier League champions have struggled this season since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson as manager and successor David Moyes has only managed to get them to seventh in the English top tier after 24 matches.
A lot of the current players at Old Trafford are thought to be below par for a club with title ambitions and Moyes is preparing for a mass exodus in the summer.
Captain Nemanja Vidic has already confirmed he will be leaving at the end of the 2013/14 campaign and Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand and Luis Nani are all expected to follow the Serbian out of the door.
Moyes is fully aware of what Coleman is capable of having bought the right-back for the Toffees in 2009 from Sligo Rovers.
Since then the Republic of Ireland international has developed into a top-class player and has particularly impressed this term with five league goals.
The Merseyside club value Coleman at around £20m, but with question marks over both Rafael and Chris Smalling’s capabilities on the right side of defence Moyes would be prepared to pay that.
As for Shaw, the 18-year-old has been brilliant at St Mary’s since progressing to the first team in 2012 and has since played 52 matches for the Saints.
With the teenager expected to have a brilliant future ahead of him the south coast club value the left-back at around £25m.
