Manchester United are expected to make Shaw the club's first signing of the summer ahead of Chelsea because United can offer more first-team opportunities, reports the Daily Mail.

Shaw is apparently more attracted to United over Chelsea due to guaranteed playing time, and is reportedly ready to make the switch if the two sides can come to agreement. Manchester United are expected to spend a lot this summer to reconfigure the team, and Shaw has been a consistent rumor in that mix.

Manchester City has joined the list of clubs hoping to win Shaw's signature for a transfer this summer, according to the Mirror.

Shaw has already been in the sights of Manchester United and Chelsea. Manchester City entering the transfer race will likely raise his selling price even higher. The young defender is currently valued at 22 million.

Manchester United have made a 22.5 million bid for Shaw, the Daily Mirror reports.

Chelsea have reportedly offered 21 million for the 18-year-old defender, but Southampton have recently said it will take at least 25 million for them to consider selling Shaw. With Patrice Evra just five months away from the end of his contract, United look at Shaw as his long-term replacement.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaw, although he's expected to remain at Southampton for the remainder of this season, will require a bid of 25 million pounds to spark any potential transfer, reports.

Shaw has started 18 games at left back this season for Southampton, who currently hold one of the league's best defensive records. As such, the 18-year-old has drawn interest from the Premiership's annual Champions League qualifiers, particularly Chelsea and Manchester United. However, with Southampton keen to keep Shaw for the remainder of this season, any potential move away from the club will likely have to wait for this summer, when Shaw will cost a pretty penny.

Despite interest from bigger clubs, Shaw has said that he has no desire to leave Southampton during the winter transfer window, reports the Daily Mail.

Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United have all been reported to be looking for an opportunity to sign the defender. Rumors had been growing as the transfer window approached, but this statement may put a rest to any further speculation, unless a big transfer fee is proposed.

Shaw is considered a doubt for Thursday's match against Cardiff City, due to the illness that held him out of last weekend's loss to Tottenham, according to The Telegraph.

Shaw has been an important part of the Southampton defense this season, although his fantasy value lies primarily in his ability to record clean sheets, something he hasn't done in his last seven Premier League matches.

Shaw, who missed an England U-21 match over the international break due to illness, is slated to play in Saturday's match against Manchester United, the Mirror reports.

Shaw has made five appearances this season, recording a clean sheet in four of them. However, he doesn't provide a lot of value outside of that, as he's taken just three shots this season, failing to score a goal or record an assist.
