David Moyes wants Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana

David Moyes is planning a double raid of Southampton, by signing Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw, according to The Express. The 50-year old Scot is prepared to spend a huge chunk of the £150m he has been provided with on the duo, thought to be valued at £35m upwards.

Chelsea and Mourinho were reportedly interested in signing the £20m rated left-back Luke Shaw, however that interest is apparently cooling, leaving United in pole position.

Adam Lallana has had a terrific season for the Saints, scoring ten goals in all competitions. At just 25-years of age, Lallana has spent eight seasons at Southampton and prising him away will be extremely difficult. Currently valued at £15m by United officials, the Old Trafford side will want to get this deal done early, because if Lallana has a good World Cup his price could rocket.

Personally I feel both Shaw and Lallana would be welcome additions at Old Trafford. We desperately need a left-back, and Shaw has the potential to be one of the best fullbacks in the league for the next fifteen years. Lallana on the other hand could become a part of David Moyes’ new tactics that include Juan Mata and Shinji Kagawa. Rather than opting for wingers with pace, he could go with these three who all excel when it comes to movement and passing.

  1. Shaw unlikely to go to chelsea. Their budget will be geared towards improving strikeforce. Also Wallace, Bertrand, Van aanholt will be returning to the club, with Azpiluqueta at left back. – it could happen, but reckon Utd is most likely (i hope) !
    Lallana, good player, but considering the budget and other targets we have, i dont see him as more than a squad player.

  2. We need to get pace back in the team. I am an advocate for trying these playmakers, but we must have pace in the team and that comes from having quick wide players. Further more, seeing how Robben and Ribery took us apart reminded me that quality pacey wingers are really what defenders hate. If we have just technical players then we will become slow and pedestrian, which is what we’ve been all season.

    • Personally I think the game is changing, and moving away from wingers with pace. Look at the Fulham game as a prime example, we crossed the ball over 90 times but their defence found it so easy to deal with.
