Manchester United are getting worried that the Luke Shaw deal could yet collapse, claim the Sunday Times. It is believed that although talks began in April, United aren’t anywhere near close to persuading Southampton to part with Shaw, and no fee is understood to have been agreed yet.
This is rather worrying, as it seems Manchester United have spent so long working on this deal, and if it were to collapse at this stage it’d be highly disappointing. Shaw is one of the hottest talents in the country and he has the potential to be a part of Manchester United’s side for the next fifteen years.
We were often promised at least ‘two or three’ transfers before the World Cup and that obviously didn’t happen. Manchester United fans, myself included have began to question Ed Woodward’s ability to do his job properly – and once again we really look to be struggling bringing players in.
One alternative to Shaw would be Daley Blind, who had a stormer for Louis van Gaal’s Holland against Spain on Friday. He’d be a cheaper alternative, who also has more football under his belt at the age of 23.
Shaw or Blind? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
