David Moyes has his eye on Luke Shaw

David Moyes is set to kick January off with the £20m signing of Southampton’s Luke Shaw after finally putting to bed his pursuit of Everton’s Leighton Baines.

Shaw has long been a target for United but the 18 year old’s new contract at the start of the season was thought to have spelled the end of the Champions interest but The Telegraph believe United are ready to test the south coast team’s resolve with a bid of £20m.

Chelsea have reportedly earmarked him as the long term successor to Ashley Cole, bad news as Shaw is purported to be a Chelsea fan, meaning United may be forced to step up their interest in the England u21 international with a bid coming in January.

Moyes has focused on the left back position since taking over at Old Trafford, with 2 failed bids for Leighton Baines during the summer. With Everton insistent that Baines won’t be sold, United have had to look elsewhere and saw a move for Real Madrid’s Fabio Coentrao fall apart at the last minute during the summer too.

With Patrice Evra now 32 and the club apparently ready to listen to offers for Alex Buttner, a move for Shaw now makes sense.

    Moyes always has successed by introducing new talent. Try to recalled n.powell,jesse lingard to help us in the final round now. With injuries problem we will need them and we are still in all the competition. Bring player that shining like powell,lingard,tunnifficle and m.keane.

    I trust you moyes don’t break my trust. You have done it with your ex team. Try united young shinning player in league cup i don’t mind if we lose in that cup. Because we have won it many time. My main aim is with such great young talent player we win champion league,league title and FA CUP.

    U know wats the problem in tottenham match. United try a lot to gave all ball to welbeck so that he can score. And wats that keep exchange passes with each other near the box when we have great long shoot goal scoring player like rooney,cleversly,carrick only januzaj was trying to score from outside the box when he got chance the rest player keep passing and lost the ball.

  6. ak says:

    Am not trying to said that he will lift title but he will make cardiff survived. And take them to 6 or 7 position in classment. He has some work to do buy two or more player and rearraged the team. That i want to see how he will bulid the team.

    Yes as united biggest fan am feeling jelous. Ole gunnar solskjaer should manutd manager not cardiff but wat to do. My dream was when sir alex retired solskjaer will replace him. At that time he was just united reserved manager. And after winning there.he want to test his managing ability by joining molde. I wanted the giggs(fullfil) and scholes in united coaching staff and ole solskjaer after winning the 2 league title in a row joined united but sir alex ruin my dream. Hope it happen in near futur now
