Luke Shaw would prefer Chelsea to Manchester United, according to report

Ian Walton

Who can honestly blame him if this is true?

The Guardian are reporting some good news for Chelsea fans hoping to see Luke Shaw take over for Ashley Cole next season. While discussing United's attempts to add some actual talent to their squad, they dropped this nugget about Shaw into their story:

United's information is that Luke Shaw, the Southampton left back, would prefer a move to Chelsea

Both Chelsea and United have reportedly made big money bids for the talented fullback already this window, though Southampton seem to be hesitant to sell. Young, homegrown talents like Shaw are a valuable commodity for English clubs, and he'd be an ideal fit to replace either Patrice Evra or Cole.

Speaking of Cole, the England left back doesn't seem to happy with his somewhat limited use this season based on one of his tweets this afternoon:

With Cole having entered the final six months of a very expensive deal, we've already been seeing all sorts of speculation that he won't be around next season. He doesn't appear to be too happy about being left out of the starting lineup on a regular basis, something which may well speed up Chelsea's pursuit of Shaw.
