After months of disappointment in the transfer window, it looks as though we’re in for one of the best 24 hours ever. Ander Herrera was confirmed as a Manchester United player yesterday, and today looks like it’ll be Luke Shaw’s turn to do the same.
Sky Sources claimed that a £30million fee had been agreed at around 8pm last night, and the deal should go through today barring any major complications.
There were murmurs that Southampton were holding out for £40million for their prized asset, but that clearly hasn’t been an option for the Saints. United are in a situation where they must overpay for players, and in Luke Shaw they have United’s potential left-back for the next fifteen years.
At just eighteen, Shaw has all the attributes required to go a long way in football. He has to keep his head screwed on and concentrate on his football, and the fame and money will come to him.
