The under fire Man United boss has been chasing a replacement for Patrice Evra ever since he succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson as boss last summer.

And while he is keen on Saints Luke Shaw he knows that the England international will not come cheaply, sparking him to explore less expensive options.

Luis has been in superb form for Atletico, prompting a flurry of interest from clubs around Europe, including Monaco who are readying an offer for the star.

Moyes is reportedly likely to offer no more than £25m for the former Deporivo La Coruna defender.

The 28-year-old Brazilian international has been a key part of Atletico’s recent successes, having helped them win the Europa League 2011 and the Copa del Rey last season, beating Real Madrid in the final.
