Manchester United have all but secured the capture of Southampton starlet Luke Shaw for a fee believed to be in the region of £30million, according to the Daily Star.

The paper claims that the deal has all but been completed for the young full-back, and that as a result Patrice Evra’s career at Old Trafford has now run its course. The transfer saga surrounding Shaw has rumbled on for quite some time now, with Chelsea also having registered an interest in securing his signature. However it would now seem that United are on the brink of doing so, and the England international will become the first purchase under new manager Louis van Gaal.

The Dutchman hasn’t rested on his laurels since being appointed in an official capacity at Old Trafford and, despite the fact that he is currently working with the Holland squad in preparation for this summer’s World Cup, a number of transfer targets for United have been identified.

Thought Shaw will almost certainly now become the first arrival to usher in the new era, he may well be followed by the likes of Toni Kroos, Mats Hummels and team-mate Adam Lallana. United chiefs are said to be keen to ensure that they don’t suffer the same frustrations as last summer, and will back Van Gaal with the money he needs to revamp the squad.
