There is plenty of talk in the papers about Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw who they bought for probably double his value in July 2014. The Red Devils paid £31.88 million for him.
He played under Mauricio Pochettino at Southampton so it is easy to speculate that Pochettino would like to buy him, many managers like to buy former players they know and trust. Chelsea are also said to be interested in the 21-year-old (22 in July) who is under contract on £70,000-a-week until 2018, although Manchester United do have a one-year extension option.
The press have muted a swap deal involving Danny Rose but Rose is happy at Spurs and in a recent interview with Sky Sports said he hopes to still be at Spurs when his current contract runs out in 2021.
If Spurs were interested in signing him then he would be backup to Rose and the two could be alternated when we are playing two games a week or more. Manchester United, according to the press, are making him available in the summer, he not being in Jose Mourinho's plans it seems, but the players agent says he is happy at Old Trafford and will not be leaving in the summer.
How this is going to play out we'll have to wait and see but a pairing of Danny Rose and Luke Shaw would certainly give us strength in depth in that position if his injuries haven't affected his game and his athleticism. He knows the Pochettino system so may not take as long as others do to come up to speed.
I can not see us signing him unless we can get him on a good deal, certainly we wouldn't be interested in paying anywhere near what Manchester United paid for him.
