Man Utd boss Van Gaal angry with Mourinho over Shaw taunts

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is upset with Chelsea rival Jose Mourinho after discussing Luke Shaw's contract. Mourinho insists Chelsea did not move for the new United fullback over his personal demands.

The Mail on Sunday says Van Gaal knows Mourinho tried to hijack Shaw's £27million summer move to Old Trafford at the eleventh hour and is angry he is now trying to effectively portray the 19-year-old as a money-grabber.

Chelsea were still in the hunt for Shaw on the day that United announced they had got their man and tried desperately to get the young England left-back to change his mind.

A senior source close to the deal confirmed: "They (Chelsea) pushed, very hard. Even up to the final hour."
