Progress is finally being confirmed as Luke Shaw will be heading to Manchester for a medical after a long period of transfer talks and disagreements as to how much the 18 year old defender is worth.
Shaw has been a target for Manchester United for quite some time now, and has made many large sum offers for the defender, only to be rebuffed multiple times by Southampton, who have wanted more for the player. Shaw is an exciting prospect and many fans are excited to see him join the United squad. The fee is still yet to be confirmed but it is believed to be somewhere between £27 million and £31 million, depending on what the two clubs can agree on.
Shaw would become the second signing at United so far this season, as well as the second signing in one week, which would mean Van Gaal and Woodward have already doubled the amount of players Moyes and Woodward brought in last year, with the only successful signing being a toilet brush.
Fans are excited to see Shaw coming to Manchester as he is only 18 years old and could be a long term player at United as well as a very good solution to United’s defensive problems after Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic have both left so far.
