After a poor first season at the helm, United boss David Moyes will look to significantly reshape his squad this summer and the Saints pair are high on his shopping list.

Chelsea are also keen on Shaw, a lifelong Blues fan, but talkSPORT understands United have moved into pole position to secure the 18-year-old full-back's signature.

And midfielder Lallana could be on his way to Old Trafford along with Shaw as part of a massive deal.

The Saints skipper has impressed for club and country this season, scoring nine goals in the Premier League and making his England debut against Chile last November, and has emerged as a top target for United.
