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.
