Manchester United will sign Luke Shaw before World Cup

Published 5 Comments

Manchester United will complete the signing of Southampton star Luke Shaw before the World Cup in a deal worth £27m, reports the Daily Mail.

The 18-year-old has had a day to remember after being selected in the 23-man England squad that will travel to Brazil to compete in the World Cup.

Roy Hodgson has chosen Shaw over the experienced Ashley Cole, citing his excellent form for Southampton as the main reason for giving him a ticket on the plane to South America.

And it seems Shaw's month is about to get a whole lot better as he is on the verge of signing for Manchester United after Southampton agreed a £27m deal with the Old Trafford outfit.

Manchester United have beaten other interested parties including Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid to convince Shaw to move to Old Trafford, where Louis van Gaal is expected to be installed as the new manager this week.

Shaw has been promised a place in the first team as of next season as it is expected Patrice Evra will depart when his contract expires at the end of June.

Manchester United see Shaw as a key part to their restructuring programme this summer and are aiming to bring in a number of established stars to help them back towards the top of the Premier League.

Officials at Old Trafford are also keen to learn from David Moyes' mistakes last summer and move quickly to seal their key targets, of which Shaw is one.
