Shaw will sign for Chelsea in the end. They'll match someone when they bid, and Shaw will choose Chelsea because he loves them and because they need an actual left back. United going for him is pointless.
I don't even think they will need to match a bid tbh. If Southampton really are gonna slap a £30m odd price tag on him I can't see anyone else but Chelsea bidding. If the price came down to £20-25m I could see Man u calling but not at £30m.
Personally I can't help but think £30m is way to much to splash on him while he's so young to begin with. then again £30m for any 18 year old seems inflated as fuck to me. No doubt he's one of the better full backs in the league this season and has a ton of potential but I rather see how he fairs after another year or two at Southampton first before believing he fully is worth that price.

That's not why it's assumed. It's assumed because Chelsea need a left back, because Chelsea like him, because Chelsea have talked of him and because Chelsea will get him. Why would he want to go to United? The Moyesiah over Mourinho?
