Liverpool linked with preposterous move for rival star

Liverpool have been linked with one particularly unlikely transfer this morning.

While it’s true the Reds are short at left back – they have to choose between the unreliable Alberto Moreno and the reliable James Milner playing out of position – a move for Manchester United’s Luke Shaw seems a serious long shot.

Apart from Liverpool’s desire for another left sided defender, the other thing that is fuelling this story is Jose Mourinho’s anger at Shaw for not wanting to play through injury in United’s last game.

This seems like more of a motivational tactic aimed at getting Shaw to work harder rather than a genuine attempt to get rid of him – although with Jose Mourinho you never know. Despite Shaw’s recent injury problems, it would cost a huge amount to bring the Englishman to Anfield.

Goal also suggest that Arsenal are tracking Chris Smalling, the other implicated as not wanting to play through injury against Swansea by his manager.
