Luke Shaw is without doubt one of the hottest properties in the Premier League at the moment, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester City and now Real Madrid all believed to be considering moves for the Southampton starlet this summer.

The London Metro reports how the 18-year-old defender - who has already made over 50 first-team appearances for the south coast club - is heavily expected to leave St Mary's at the end of the season.

According to Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio, Shaw's valuation already stands at around €30million (£25million), and with so many interested parties he is likely to become the subject of a bidding war as soon as the transfer window reopens in June.

That bidding war could prompt the player's price tag to rise further, meaning there is a strong chance that the England international could become the most expensive ever teenager in world football.

Mauricio Pochettino will be desperate to retain Shaw's services for the 2014/15 campaign, but should Southampton receive a record-breaking offer for the teen talent, then they could be forgiven to caving in to the demands of some of Europe's most high-profile clubs.

With speculation swirling about the highly-rated youngster's long-term future, GiveMeSport has decided to provide you with a list of the world's current top 10 most expensive teenagers in world football, with valuations (in euros) taken from therichest.com.
