Manchester United are confident of landing Southampton starlet Luke Shaw this summer, according to Goal.com.
The highly rated teenager - who has had a fine season for the Saints - has been tracked by some of England's elite clubs in recent time.
If reports are to be believed, the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool are all interested in the player's signature, however it appears that Manchester United are in the driving seat.
The Red Devils look set to make a move for the youngster before this summer's World Cup - a tournament that Shaw could feature in.
The full-back was named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year recently and will prove some coup for the Premier League champions, should they sign him in the up coming market.
Manchester United are willing to pay more than £25 million in order to secure the England international, with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho not ready to guarantee him first team football at Stamford Bridge.
Fans of Manchester United will now be hoping a deal for the youngster is completed in the near future as they head into a new era.
