Newcastle have been linked in the Star with Manchester United left-back Like Shaw who seems to have no future under Jose Mourinho at the Red Devils.
In fact, the 22-year-old has been told he can leave the club which he joined from Southampton back in the summer of 2014.
At that time Shaw signed a four-year contract for a fee rumored to be around £30M and at the time that made him the most expensive teenager in world football.
Luke Shaw – Newcastle interested in signing him in January?
However, he has not had a good time at the red devils, especially since Jose Mourinho joined the club almost 18 months ago and luke may want to move on to resurrect his career.
Whether Newcastle will go after him depends on whether he is rated by Rafa Benitez, but the 22-year-old has shown in the past that he is a good player who may have just lost his way.
It’s also thought the Red Devils would want around £20M for Shaw and for such a good young player, in today’s inflated transfer prices, that could even be a good deal for Newcastle.
Other clubs said to be interested in Shaw include his former club Southampton and Everton.
We may bid for Luke Shaw if Rafa gets some hefty transfer funds from potential new owners in January.
Let’s hope that happens.
