Personally thought Shaw would end up at Chelsea so wouldn't be surprised if a bid from Stamford Bridge is forthcoming. With Ashley Cole coming to the end of his career there would appear to an opening at LB (currently occupied by Azpilacueta who I presume would move back to RB).

stupid amount of money for a LB but id rather buy him than a 29 year old baines for the same money. at least u could get at least 10 good years out of him. @redman_inc desperation is when u spend 35 mill on a goon sell him for half of that, then say he's a quality player when u need him to try and do u a favour. how did that work out for ya?

@redman_inc Hardly, Evra is coming to the end of his United career, forget the shambles that this season has been, forget the overall squad strength, even if United had again won the league at a canter, they'd still have needed to sign a replacement for Evra. I always thought it would have been crazy to spend the same amount of money on Baines as they now intend to spend on Shaw, since Baines is only a couple of years younger, whereas Shaw is top quality and has more than 10 years ahead of him. It's a lot of money but that's because he's top quality, young, and there's the English premium to consider as well. Pathetic desperation was signing Fellaini and Mata but the bad old days of Moyes are over, it's onwards and upwards now.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
