Twitter Reactions: Tottenham Fans Erupt After Links With Manchester United’s £27m Star

Published

Luke Shaw’s future remains under a cloud at Manchester United with The Independent stating that the club are already finding potential suitors for him this summer.

This report doesn’t really catch one off guard but what does is the Manchester club have earmarked title rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea as future destinations for the defender. Despite the rumours, both clubs have remained tight-lipped since there is no need for them to strengthen the left-back slot.

Both the London teams are known for their swift attacking system that has turned them dangerous this campaign. And one of the key tactics is implementing pace and creativity to the left flank. The Blues are sitting pretty at the peak of the table and the left-sided wing-back role is shackled to Marcos Alonso, who is arguably one of the best signings of the summer. In terms of a capable deputy, Antonio Conte has recalled loanee Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.

The most tempted route for Shaw would be reuniting with Mauricio Pochettino as the pair worked together in Southampton. The England international saw a meteoric rise in his stock under the Argentinean’s tutelage which got the Red Devils splashing £27 million to secure his services in 2014. Despite arriving at Old Trafford with heavy scrutiny, he managed to reap up some positive reviews at first.

Tottenham, on the other hand, have a left-back fixture in the first team in the name of Danny Rose. With 2 goals and 2 assists already and near-telepathic partnership with the rest of the defence, it would be surreal for Pochettino to replace him. Besides that, if Rose picks up an injury, Ben Davies is available at the manager’s disposal. In other news, Davies is targeted by relegation-fighting Crystal Palace. With Jan Vertonghen sidelined with an ankle injury, chances of the deal to go through is next to nothing.

Shaw’s career derailed due to lengthy injuries and a rough relationship with Jose Mourinho, as the former Real Madrid boss has criticised him a number of times in public. Once he returned to full fitness, fluctuations in form started to haunt the 21-year-old. After missing out a significant amount of matches and losing the trust of the manager, it’s pretty clear Shaw is toying between self-doubt and pressure, halting him to play up to his potential. He has only notched up 7 league appearance where only 4 of those were full 90 minutes.

Below are how Spurs’ faithful reacted to the report.

Next up for the Lilywhites are an away fixture to Manchester City. After hammering West Brom 4-0 last weekend, they will be gearing to bag all three points. Meanwhile, The Citizens are facing the glares of the cameras for all wrong reasons. They were on the receiving end of a 4-0 scoreline against Everton in the previous match.
