Manchester United will finalise a £27million move for Southampton left-back Luke Shaw, according to the usually reliable Mark Ogden of the Telegraph. It now looks a case of when rather than if the move will happen, as Mark Ogden is one of the most reliable when it comes to United news.
The 18-year old from Kingston upon Thames wants to focus on his England commitments before signing on the dotted line at Old Trafford, and despite interest from his boyhood club Chelsea, it looks like Shaw will be wearing the red of Manchester United next season.
This deal has believed to have been in place for a while now, and David Moyes was in control of the early talks back in April. It looks like the deal will now go through at the start of July at the very earliest, as thats when the group stages of the World Cup end.
Sky Bet have also suspended betting on Shaw making the move to United, suggesting that everyone expects this move to happen at some point.
