Luke Shaw was subject to an £27m bid from Manchester United just over a week ago, and since then all has been relatively quiet regarding any potential transfer. However after Louis van Gaal was announced yesterday, transfer dealings seem to have increased.
The Manchester Evening News’ Stuart Mathieson has claimed a deal to bring Luke Shaw to Old Trafford is ‘95% done’, and an announcement should be made before the World Cup.
Shaw is expected to sign a five-year deal, on wages of around £100k-a-week making him the highest paid teenager in Premier League history. This sounds steep right now, but Shaw could easily give us fifteen years of service, making it an excellent long-term investment.
Mathieson also claimed that some exciting Dutch talents could be Manchester-bound, as Louis van Gaal looks to continue the Oranje love-in at the club.
