Man Utd braced for offers as Frank Lampard pushes Everton to sign long-term Red Devils star ahead of Prem rival

According to a source, Frank Lampard is 'hugely keen' on signing a Manchester United regular in 2023 and wants Everton to beat Leicester City to his services.

Everton faced fellow Premier League side Bournemouth in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night. Both sides made numerous substitutions as their respective managers chose to rest their key players for this weekend’s match against the same clubs.

Lampard started with a lineup that included Asmir Begovic, Tom Davies, Yerry Mina, and Ruben Vinagre. Everton was trounced 4-1 at the Vitality Stadium as a result of the adjustments.

The Cherries received goals from Jamal Lowe, Junior Stanislas, Emiliano Marcondes, and Jaidon Anthony. Demarai Gray scored for Everton in the 67th minute, but they were already 2-0 behind and his goal couldn’t spark a comeback.

Lampard expressed disappointment and frustration after the defeat, stating that the guys that came in struggled. And he is almost expected to bring back the first-team regulars when Everton travels to Bournemouth on Saturday.

A few hours before the cup match, Football Transfers reported that Manchester United could lose a 2014 signing to either Everton or Leicester.

The player in question is left-back Luke Shaw, who cost Manchester United £27 million when he arrived from Southampton in the summer of 2014.

The state of football transfers In the summer, Shaw conducted negotiations with both Everton and Leicester about leaving Old Trafford.

Everton is still in talks with Manchester United about a possible transfer.
Lampard’s talks with Everton have continued throughout the new season as he attempts to beat Leicester to the move. The Everton manager is reported as ‘very interested in signing Shaw to his squad.

Everton and Leicester are interested in the defender since Manchester United has allowed his contract to lapse. Shaw’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season, making him a free agent.

Man United has the option to extend it by a year, as do several other top players. However, they have yet to activate this option or reward him with new terms. This gives Everton and Leicester hope of completing a high-profile trade.

According to the report, Shaw is looking for a new contract at Manchester United. This means that his sole concentration is on impressing boss Erik ten Hag in order to extend his stay in Manchester.

Tyrell Malacia poses a threat to Luke Shaw.
However, Ten Hag signed Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord in the summer, and he is a direct competitor for Shaw. If Malacia becomes the first-choice left-back, Everton and Leicester could be interested in signing the England international.

The story makes no indication of how much Shaw might cost if he leaves Manchester United. They would prefer to receive more than the £27 million they paid for him almost eight years ago. However, his contract expiration may derail this idea.

This transfer rumor is one to keep an eye on as the January transfer window approaches. Given his international and Champions League experience, Shaw would be an excellent signing for Everton. It’s simple to see why Lampard is so interested in him.

Lampard’s current left-back alternatives are Vitaliy Mykolenko and Vinagre, so the 27-year-old would be an upgrade. The only issue with the potential deal will be convincing Manchester United to let Shaw go.
