Man Utd full-back linked with shock move to direct PL rivals

Leicester City have reportedly approached Man United to determine whether Luke Shaw might be available for transfer.

The 24-year-old full-back was voted the Red Devils Players’ Player of the Year and Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year for the 2018-19 season having enjoyed his most productive campaign for the team.

The Englishman has again struggled this campaign, though, and is now under pressure for his starting role at the 20-times English champions due to the emergence of academy graduate Brandon Williams.

The Foxes, meanwhile, could soon be in the market for a new defender as the rumours surrounding Ben Chilwell, who has been heavily linked with Chelsea and Man City, continues to gather pace.

According to The Mirror, Leicester City are preparing for life after England international and have made an enquiry to the Red Devils to determine the availability of Luke Shaw.

The ex-Southampton defender was on the sidelines between the end of August and start of December following the knee injury but has been involved in eight of the Red Devils last Premier League games.

Shaw pulled out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad against Norwich City on Saturday afternoon with a tight hamstring, though, and academy graduate Williams again impressed at left-back while Shaw has been on the sidelines
