David Moyes, the new boss at Old Trafford is all ready to pay a whooping 75,000 pounds a week to the eighteen year old Luke Shaw to bring him on board. This sum is by far the highest as compared to Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Man United’s Adnan Januzaj, where 60,000 pounds a week deal was signed by both of them as teens. With this, Southampton lad almost quadrupled his Southampton wages.
Shaw made his Debut in England on Wednesday, while the Saints seem ready as well to open talk to bring him on the team. Last July, David signed his 5 year contract, which was his first professional one. Besides United, Shaw was also demanded by Manchester City and Chelsea. Leaving back all, United seems all determined to grab the defender no matter what it takes.
Shaw however is an ardent fan of Chelsea since his folks hail from a place close to Surrey where the Chelsea team trains. It was however reported that Moyes still believes that they are in the top of the list of clubs who can grab Shaw.
Jose Mourinho, Chelsea’s manager at the moment seems pretty unwilling to match the sky high quote as given by the Saints. However, Moyes is ready to gamble with Shaw right now, dishing out the staggering amount to bag the hottest young sensation English football has seen in some time. Shaw seems to be a perfect fit for the new United squad Moyes plans to field in the next season.
Old Trafford of late signed an extended contract with Wayne Rooney shedding out a whopping 300,000 pounds a week, while Juan Mara was captured from Chelsea for a staggering 37 million pounds, which is a club record.
