A NEW mural dedicated to Manchester United star Luke Shaw has caught the eye of fans – for a striking resemblance to Eric Cantona.
The Adidas artwork going up in the town of Darwen is nearing completion and early images have emerged online.
Twitter user @LukeShawArmy posted snaps of the large mural being worked on.
The defender, 26, is shown in a blue camouflage jacket and a serious scowl that may be familiar to United fans.
Supporters online praised the artwork yet could not help but notice the similarities it has with Cantona.
One United fan posted on Twitter: “Class painting, thought it was Cantona.”
Milly added: “Why did I think it was Cantona.”
Kaya joked: “if Eric Cantona and Shaw had a child.”

Tyler tweeted: “Looks more like Cantona.”
And Mudasser commented: “Mad how everybody else sees the king too.”
French legend Cantona, 55, won four Premier League titles and two FA Cups during his time at Old Trafford in the 1990s.
Shaw has some way to go to meet that tally, now in his eighth year with the club with only a Europa League winners’ medal in the bag.
