A Move Looks Like A Shaw Thing

With all the madness and insane levels of investment over the past week, it’s easy to miss some of the stories doing the rounds at the moment. However, a quick glimpse at the top risers over the past 24 hours should tell its own story…

It seems as though Jose Mourinho’s relationship with another one of his players has now reached breaking point: this time Luke Shaw is the man in the frame. Shaw has had a pretty torrid time at United since his £30 million transfer from the Saints four years ago. Shaw’s move to United came on the back of a brilliant season with Southampton, one in which the youngster was already being touted as a future England star at left back and yet it just doesn’t seem to have worked out for Shaw. But what’s gone wrong?

Firstly, Shaw has had a string of injuries since joining United and as a result, he has really struggled to establish a decent run of games. A change of managers at United has done little to help Shaw and it seems that Mourinho has had it in for Shaw since the very beginning of his tenure in charge. One minute Shaw has been given the cold shoulder by Mourinho, the next he’s backed him for big things, but recently it seems as though Shaw has finally realised his future may lie elsewhere.

With several clubs already forming an orderly queue for Shaw’s services, Index traders have been quick to snap up futures in Shaw and this lead to a price increase by 36p. Shaw’s surge in value was the biggest from a percentage point of view as he ended the day a cool 32.4% up. For those traders who would have had £100 in Shaw, you’d be looking at over £30 increase in value in less than 24 hours; you’re not going to find those kinds of returns at any banks that’s for Shaw (Sorry!) With both Chelsea and Tottenham currently showing a keen interest, perhaps a move to another big Premier League club will be just what Shaw needs. After all, there’s a reason he was regarded of one of the best defensive prospects in the country when he first moved to United, so let’s hope he is able to fulfil his potential!

Sticking with United for the time being and it’s not quite been all sunshine and roses for Alexis Sanchez either since his move to Old Trafford. The Chilean striker hasn’t quite hit the form we saw whilst he was at Arsenal and his poor performances has lead to a steady decline in value. Sanchez was subject to a 16p decrease yesterday leaving him teetering just above the £4.00 mark with a value of £4.08. It’s interesting to see that Sanchez is no longer flavour of the month with the press and it does seem that (for the time being at least) the British media have their sights set elsewhere. Still, Sanchez could yet prove to be a potential profiteer. From a long-term point of view, if he can hit his former heights (which is a definite possibility) it wouldn’t take much for his trajectory to reverse! As such, he definitely remains a player that traders should keep a close eye on…
