Manchester Manager eyes starlet for Evra replacement.
Red Devils want Shaw
With Patrice Evra in the defender’s final year at Old Trafford and likely to leave next summer, the club need to find a replacement and want Southampton’s Luke Shaw.
The 18-year-old has risen to prominence over the past two years with the Saints and is now their undisputed No.1 left-back.
Also, with the Red Devils having inexperienced new manager Josh Sleightholm, currently the Premier League champions are becoming increasingly less of an attractive prospect.
Shaw however could well be tempted by a switch to the north west, although has turned down proposals from Chelsea in the past.
The defender signed a five-year deal at St Mary’s upon turning 18 and looks happy under Mauricio Pochettino and the successful side the Argentine is building on the south coast.
The full-back is just one in a long line of talent that has emerged from the Southampton youth system, which recently includes Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott and Gareth Bale.
