United We Stand and Red Issue – who are both fairly reliable and have sources close to the club – claim United have agreed a £27m deal for 18-year-old Shaw, who will earn £85,000-a-week at Old Trafford and replace 32-year-old Patrice Evra, who is out of contract in the summer.
Shaw made his England debut last month and has been a regular for Saints at left back since their return to the top flight.
He has been frequently linked to United by credible sources such as the Mirror.
Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal and Real Madrid are also thought to be tracking the youngster but, if true, this will be a major coup for under-fire Red Devils boss David Moyes, who failed to land a number of his top targets last summer, including Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara.
