Tottenham aim to steal Man United target with sub-£30m bid

Tottenham are aiming to swoop for Manchester United’s top summer target, but won’t be prepared to pay the £30million required to land him, according to the Evening Standard.

Spurs have reportedly joined the race for Southampton starlet Luke Shaw, and will attempt a swoop for him in the next transfer window as they look to improve their full-back positions. However it’s thought that the north London outfit may be outpriced in the race for the 18-year-old England international, as the likes of United, Chelsea and Liverpool all join them in the hunt.

Recent speculation has suggested it would cost any potential suitors as much as £30million to convince the Saints to let go of their prized asset, which may be a stumbling block for Daniel Levy and co. at White Hart Lane. Harbouring doubts over the defensive capabilities of both Danny Rose and Kyle Naughton, the Standard claims that Tottenham want to bring in a new full-back, and in Shaw they could not find a more in-form candidate.

However therein lies the ultimate problem. With a host of big clubs no doubt plotting enticing moves for the youngster Tim Sherwood’s side will be underdogs when it completing a deal that would secure his future, and they be better served targeting more acquirable talents.
