Manchester United are convinced they will sign Luke Shaw for £30 million this summer, according to The Guardian.
And it appears that former United chief David Moyes played an integral role in persuading the starlet to opt for a move to the Theatre of Dreams.
If the club can secure a deal for Shaw, then they will feel they've got one over on their Premier League rivals Chelsea, who have also been heavily linked with a move for the England international in recent time.
Shaw is recognised as one of the most highly rated youngsters in the world, and United are seemingly ready to make him English football's highest ever paid teenager.
It remains to be seen as to whether Patrice Evra will depart the club this summer, but Shaw is certainly seen as the long term replacement for the French international at Old Trafford.
Despite the fact that Manchester United are without a permanent manager, it appears that their transfer business is well under way ahead of the up coming window.
Manchester United fans will hope that Shaw is the first of many names to arrive through the gates at the Theatre of Dreams this summer.
