Pellegrini keen to land £22m Manchester United and Chelsea target

Share

Luke Shaw could be one of those players for whom several English clubs could go into the bidding war in the summer. For two reasons mainly. Homegrown advantage and secondly he is sheer quality.

southampton 366402 Pellegrini keen to land £22m Manchester United and Chelsea target

During the January transfer window, he was one of the prime targets of Chelsea and Manchester United while Liverpool were also interested in the Southampton left-back.

The 18-year-old has established himself strongly this season and has been named in the 30-man squad by Roy Hodgson in England’s upcoming friendly against Denmark at Wembley.

Chelsea could be looking for a replacement of Ashley Cole, who has lost the starting place in the squad to Cesar Azpilicueta.

Likewise, Manchester United could be interested in splashing money on him as well with David Moyes keen to rebuild the squad according to his own taste. Patrice Evra’s future has been speculated in the media while United’s first choice target Leighton Baines has extended his contract with Everton.

The Daily Mail reports that Manchester City are also keeping a close tab on the Englishman and could make a move him in the summer as well. Former Arsenal left back Gael Clichy has been vying for the position with Aleksander Kolarov and none of them have managed to secure the first eleven role on a regular basis.

Southampton though have resisted all temptations thus far but hard to see the Saints holding on to him when big offers will start to arrive on the table in the summer.

  1. Official Club Statement. Manchester Football Asylum

    Yes, we are looking at several players at the moment.The manager has sent his scouting team out 13 times to watch Messi, Ronaldo, Iniesta, Mangala,Bale,Xavi,Reus,Gundogan,Kroos and Barkley .He is very thorough in his player assessment. He will not waste the club’s money on useless players.

    He needs players who can join him in his vision of how football should be played.The current batch in the Asylum have stopped responding to his treatment.The Board of Directors are all backing the under fire manager.They feel that they know better than the millions of supporters worldwide who are used to ‘Total Football’. Manager Dave Mindless is determined to push his agenda of ‘Total Crap’ football onto the masses of United fans worldwide.

    Editors opinion; It seems that the Coaching staff’s lunacy has spread to the board. This manager is to politely put it a ‘Numptie’ and no one has gone into his CV with any depth.We believe that the ‘See you Jimmy’ club ,with their ‘funny’ handshakes and ‘head butt’ greetings are protecting their own. The ‘madness’ seems to be catching as other football purists constantly repeat their mantra “He needs time”, but do not be fooled by these “speak your weight machines”, as all of them are plotting to oust Dave Mindless. Can I suggest that, he does time for the ‘poisonous football’ he has served up to the world.

    CONTINENTAL NEWS; The world’s top footballers have issued a statement that a certain Manchester Asylum are not so much scouting them ,but in actual fact are stalking them.Some of the above players maybe in that statement.

    BREAKING NEWS……The ex manager is threatening to use the ‘belt’ he was hit with as a child (The one that made him successful) on the editor of this post.Might we suggest that he uses it on Dave Mindless.

  2. This is a real chance for chelsea to sign a good left-back
