Southampton executive chairman Nicola Cortese has already stated at the start of the transfer window that the club will reject all offers for the England U21-left-back and by the sounds of United’s latest advances, all enquiries have been met with a stern ‘Not for sale’ stance.
The 18-year-old has recently been linked with a switch to Chelsea in which he is a huge fan of, many fans of Manchester United would rather that David Moyes went for the youth of Luke Shaw over the longly anticipated Leighton Baines from Everton.
According to recent reports Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are all after Luke Shaw, with a valuation that is expected to be around £20million.
Manchester United have their left-back position very much on the transfer plans, with Patrice Evra likely to be moving to Monaco at the end of the season in a bumper pay-day deal. Fabio Coentrão, Leighton Baines and Luke Shaw all have been linked with a move to the current Premier League champions.
