Breaking: Manchester United make official £27m Luke Shaw bid

Ian Walton

Manchester United have just launched a £27m bid for Southampton's Luke Shaw, according to Sky Sports News.

Manchester United have made a transfer bid of £27m for Luke Shaw from Southampton, according to Sky Sports News.

It looks like the club is at least learning the lessons of last year and doing things earlier this time - presumably Louis van Gaal has had his say. As it is, the timing - just after Manchester City win the league - pleases us greatly.

Shaw certainly kept Adnan Januzaj quiet earlier and put in a great display against us, although we are slightly disappointed that he has to be one of the duller 'wonderkids' ever to exist.

Whether it's a case of 'he did OK against us - buy him', Fergie-style, or merely tying up the loose ends while we were in that neck of the woods, we don't know. Nonetheless, Shaw should be a reasonable acquisition - although we also hope we now keep Evra on board for another year rather than relying all season on a wean.
