Manchester United are considering a £15 million swoop for West Ham full-back Aaron Cresswell, according to the Sun on Sunday.

The 25-year-old has impressed since joining the Hammers from Ipswich last year, and played in every single one of their Premier League fixtures last time round.

The Sun reports that Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has been impressed with Cresswell, who is pushing for an England call-up, and could move for him in January as a replacement for Shaw.

The Manchester United full-back could be out for the rest of the season after suffering a double leg fracture in the 2-1 defeat against PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday. Shaw has returned to Manchester following a spell in an Eindhoven hospital - after a visit from the man who inflicted his injury, PSV defender Hector Moreno.

The former Southampton ace appears to be in good spirits following his shocking injury, posting a picture on Instagram alongside the message: “I just wanna say a massive thank you to everyone at St Anna hospital for all the care and attention they have given me.

“Something I will never forget! Am pleased to be flying back to Manchester today so I start my journey back onto the football pitch!”


Moreno is said to have visited Shaw in hospital to offer up his apologies for the challenge, which referee Nicola Rizzoli opted against punishing with even a yellow card.

Reports claim that the defender broke down in tears when he saw Shaw, and insisted there was no malice in his tackle.

Do you think Shaw will return before the end of the season?
