Manchester United transfer news: Reds to raid bitter rivals for shock defender signing

Posted by

United plot surprise raid on rivals for young defender.

Manchester United could make a surprise raid on their old rivals Leeds United this January as they eye the signing of highly-rated young left-back Charlie Taylor.

According to the Daily Star, Luke Shaw’s horror injury against PSV in the Champions League this week could force the Red Devils into the transfer market for a replacement.

United have little in the way of backup for Shaw at the moment, with Daley Blind operating as a centre-back this season, and Ashley Young performing well in a more advanced role so far.

Taylor’s impressive form in the Championship has made United take notice, it seems, and it could be that he will be brought in to fill Shaw’s boots from January onwards.
