Luke Shaw’s position at United
In the last few seasons, the former Southampton star has failed to make a solid impact at Old Trafford. Brandon Williams has put in some good performances this season and is more likely to be preferred by the United manager Ole Gunnar Solsjkar. Leicester is not likely to sell Chilwell this January.
But it is also true that a number of English Giants are continuously monitoring the England international. The United chiefs are in touch with the Fox manager Brandon Rogers over a potential move for Shaw. The Fox officials are ready to make a bid for Shaw if he agrees to leave United this winter. Shaw joined the Red Devils from
Southampton in 2014. As he is young enough, United do not want to let him leave at a lower price. United wanted at least more than at which they bought him.
Shaw is looking to lose his confidence from the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He also got injured several times and out for a long period. His lack of game time at United made several rumors that he could leave United. This will increase the chances of Chelsea to sign Chilwell.

In this case, Manchester United can do a direct swap with Luke Shaw but the same can be offered by Chelsea. Chelsea are looking to both left-backs. It’s up to Leicester City which player they want as replacement of England international
