Moyes confident he'll beat Chelsea to sign Shaw

Manchester United manager David Moyes believes his club will beat rivals Liverpool and Chelsea to sign Luke Shaw this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Moyes has made the England defender his top summer transfer target and has earmarked £25m to spend on the left-back.

The position is an area of concern for United with current first-team defender Patrice Evra out of contract at the end of the season. He could return to France with several clubs interested.

And Moyes wants to capitalise on the news that Southampton have a £27m transfer deficit in their budget that could force the south coast club's hand.

Southampton's board has insisted that no players will be sold if Mauricio Pochettino wants to keep them, but Moyes is increasingly confident that he can land Shaw ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has favoured Cesar Azpilicueta over Ashley Cole, another veteran defender out of contract this summer, but the right-footed Spaniard may revert to his favoured right-back next season.

Mourinho has been linked with Shaw, as has Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, with the Anfield chief currently using Jon Flanagan as a right-footed makeshift left-back.

Shaw won his first England cap earlier this year, and has been tipped to earn a spot in the England squad for the World Cup this summer.
