Manchester United are odds-on favourites with bookmakers to sign Luke Shaw from Southampton this summer following reports in the media on Wednesday. Various reports have suggested that Man United are close to completing a deal to sign the teenager, who has earned his first senior England cap after impressing for Southampton this season. Shaw has been backed to beat veteran Ashley Cole to a place at the World Cup in Roy Hodgson’s England squad, alongside Everton’s Leighton Baines. Man United have long been linked with a move to Shaw as manager David Moyes seeks to sign a long-term replacement for Patrice Evra at left-back, with the Frenchman widely expected to depart Old Trafford this summer. Following today’s reports, Shaw is priced as low as 1/3 with Sky Bet to join Man United in the summer, while Chelsea, who the full-back is a boyhood supporter of, are priced as second favourites at 5/2.
