Man United tempt £30m Chelsea target with £75,000-a-week offer

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United are prepared to make Luke Shaw the highest-paid teenager in Premier League history in order to beat Chelsea to the Southampton left-back's signature, according to the Daily Star.

United boss David Moyes is prepared to hand the 18-year-old, who made his senior England debut against Denmark on Wednesday night, an unprecedented £75,000-a-week contract.

That would quadruple his current wages - and top the £60,000-a-week deals that Manchester United's Adnan Januzaj and Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have signed as teenagers.

Shaw, who is rated at £30m by his current employers, is widely regarded as the Premier League's most promising young full-back.

Starsport understands that United are in pole position to land the gifted youngster, despite the fact that Chelsea, who Shaw grew up supporting as a boy, are also keen.

However, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly reluctant to meet Southampton's valuation of the player, which may allow Moyes and United to win the race this summer.
