Manchester United are preparing a double swoop for Southampton players Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana this summer, talkSPORT is reporting.

The duo would require a bid in the £50m range and make a major dent in the Manchester United transfer budget. David Moyes, presuming he’s still around to make decisions in the next window, will try to shore up key positions in the squad.

Chelsea are also heavily involved in the Shaw sweepstakes, but he is a bigger need for United and that may be the card they choose to play.

Lallana, meanwhile, has grown in reputation and stature over the last year or so. The midfielder has made it into the England squad and has scored nine goals in the Premier League.

Shaw has been the most talked about name in regards to United’s summer plans alongside Sporting Lisbon’s defensive midfielder William Carvalho.
