On Sunday night reports spread that Manchester United had lodged a £27m bid for Southampton’s 18 year old Luke Shaw.
The Guardian tonight reported that Man United had had their bid rejected, following the left back’s call-up to the World Cup squad.
However, tomorrow’s Daily Mail claim Southampton have agreed to let him go for £27m, with a deal to be announced before the World Cup.
Linked to Man City and Chelsea, Southampton will have to fight hard this summer to keep hold of their star youngster.
Patrice Evra is rumoured to be on his way out at Old Trafford but will they be able to bring in Luke Shaw as his replacement?
The Guardian says no and the Mail says yes. When in doubt, believe the broadsheet.
