Shaw should join Manchester United, say Goal readers

The 18-year-old has been widely linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent months and the results of our poll suggest the majority of you believe it would be a good decision

Luke Shaw should join Manchester United from Southampton this summer, according to the majority of Goal readers who voted in our poll.

On Friday Goal revealed that United are leading the race to sign the prodigious 18-year-old and are willing to splash out as much as £25 million to secure him this summer.

And almost half of those who voted - 46.3 per cent, to be precise - believe Shaw should swap St Mary's for Old Trafford and usurp Patrice Evra at left-back.

Alternatively, just over a quarter of voters (26.7%) believe the prodigious 18-year-old would be best served by staying at Southampton for at least another season.

Some 19.1% think the best move Shaw could make is to Chelsea, the club he supported as a boy, where he would be regarded as the long-term successor to Ashley Cole.

Only 5% think the youngster should move to Manchester City, while 2.9% believe he should join Tottenham.
