Barca “want to sign” United’s Luke Shaw

Out-of-favour Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has been linked with a shock move to La Liga leaders Barcelona.

The left-back has had a public fallout with United boss Jose Mourinho and has reportedly attracted the attention of a host of English clubs including Everton and Tottenham.

However, a surprising report in the Daily Mirror outlines the Blaugrana’s interest in the 22-year-old in what would be a ‘shock swoop’.

The English defender is ‘aware the Catalans are considering a bid’ and the club believe Shaw, whose contract expires in June 2019, “could be a good value addition” to their ranks.

Barca are thought to be targeting a new left-back this summer to give competition to Jordi Alba, with Lucas Digne expected to depart the Camp Nou this year.
