Graeme Le Saux believes Southampton starlet Luke Shaw should snub Manchester United and Chelsea this summer, should the duo come calling for his signature, reports The Daily Star.
The ex-Blues defender believes Shaw is at the perfect place to continue his development and should stay with Mauricio Pochettino's side for next season.
Shaw is one of England's finest prospects and has attracted great interest from some of the top clubs in England.
Both Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly set for a summer transfer tussle for the player's signature, and recent reports have suggested that the youngster will cost as much as £30 million.
However, Le Saux doesn't want the ace to move to either of England's elite clubs.
Speaking to reporters: "I've been watching him play quite a lot.
"He has the qualities of an attacking full-back who has a lot of pace and a lot of energy.
"His defending is getting better as he gets more experienced.
"He's still very young and the more experience he gains for his club and at under-21 level, I feel that he's in the right place at the moment and his development is crucial."
Manchester United and Chelsea are both seemingly interested in signing a new left-back, with Patrice Evra and Ashley Cole entering the twilight years of their careers.
However, it remains to be seen as to whether Manchester United or Chelsea are able to get their hands on Shaw in the next window.
