The 21-year-old, who has undergone a number of trials over the past year, has received rave reviews despite plying his trade in the Scottish Third Division.
Celtic and Everton are just a number of teams the shot-stopper had trained with over the past few months, whilst Oldham also looked at the star last term.
Although The Red Devils have a plethora of keepers at the club, including Fabien Barthez, Ricardo and Roy Carroll, manager Sir Alex Ferguson always has one eye on the long-term future.
The Old Trafford side are believed to have sent Martin Ferguson, Sir Alex's brother, to observe Rovers' recent 1-1 draw against Elgin City.
Shearer is highly-rated by Rovers, with manager Peter Hetherston saying: "Scott is one of the best young keepers around.
"The interest in him is increasing ahead of the opening of the next transfer window in January."
