Ex-Manchester United star Paul Parker believes his former side should target Southampton full-back Luke Shaw, reports talkSPORT. 

The Red Devils had previously been tracking Everton star Leighton Baines, and it had been suggested that United would make another move for the England international in this transfer window, however Parker believes David Moyes should opt for Shaw. 

Shaw has impressed in the Premier League over the past year and, at just 18-years-old, he has bags of potential. 

Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show, Parker said: “If you’re going to spend money and you’re looking for a bit of return on your investment then Luke Shaw is the one you want to get.

“As a good as Leighton Baines is, his price will be very high and where is your return? That’s the worrying point.

“Shaw has done very well so far this season and he’s a young player they can build into future teams.

“He’s a longer term prospect who is the better buy out of the two for me. Everyone is talking about him because he’s a very good prospect.”

Shaw has also been linked with a move to Chelsea as both Manchester United and the Blues look for long term replacements for their ageing left-backs. 

It remains to be seen as to what the future holds for Manchester United's Patrice Evra and Chelsea's Ashley Cole, however Shaw could be the man to replace on the pair. 

However Manchester United's and Chelsea's immediate attention will turn to the FA Cup third round this weekend. 

David Moyes' side play host to Swansea City, meanwhile Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho takes his side to Derby County.
