Manchester United boss David Moyes has made a £22.5million bid for Southampton’s teenage left-back Luke Shaw.
Moyes has topped Chelsea’s offer of £21m and is hoping to open talks this weekend. The Old Trafford chief is keen to land the 18-year-old immediately by offering him the opportunity to start in the first team from the outset, as well as a lucrative long-term contract.
The Scot knows that veteran skipper Patrice Evra is in the final five months of his contract when the window shuts and wants Shaw in now as part of his re-build, while Chelsea still have to settle Ashley Cole’s future.
Moyes has already agreed a £37m deal for Chelsea’s Juan Mata. That will break United’s previous transfer record – £30.75m paid for Dimitar Berbatov in 2008.
