Manchester United and Chelsea target Luke Shaw is almost certain to leave Southampton in the summer, that is according to former Saints manager Glenn Hoddle.
Speaking in an interview with radio station talkSPORT, Hoddle revealed a number of the Premier League's top clubs were intent on making a move for Shaw, who has been linked with £30million interest from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal.
Southampton tied Shaw down to a long-term contract in the summer when he turned 18, which had led many to believe he would not be going anywhere any time soon, but Hoddle is convinced the left-back's development will make it impossible for Southampton to hang on to him.
However, the former England manager thinks if clubs such as Chelsea or Manchester United had any hopes of landing the youngster this month they will be disappointed
“Luke Shaw will move on, Southampton won’t be able to keep him. There are some big clubs in the top four after him. He looks the real deal," said Hoddle in the interview.
“I don’t think he’ll leave in this transfer window but certainly at the end of the season. He’s got a bright future, which will include England honours.”
Shaw has been a revelation since breaking into the Southampton first team as a regular in their maiden Premier League season last year.
