Manchester United confident of landing £30m Shaw despite setback

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are still confident of landing Southampton full-back Luke Shaw despite being told he's not for sale, according to The Guardian

It appears that Southampton's stance on the full-back - who turns 19-years-old next next month - is recognised as a bargaining position, and Manchester United appear ready to offer as much as £30 million for the player's services. 

Manchester United seem determined to tie up the deal for the youngster before this summer's World Cup - a tournament that Shaw will be part of.

Shaw is one of the most sought after teenagers in world football, and has attracted interest from the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea in recent time. 

However, it now seems likely that he will end up at Manchester United ahead of the 2014/15 campaign, as they look to enter a new era under Louis van Gaal - who is expected to be named the Red Devils' new boss in the near future. 

It now remains to be seen as to whether Manchester United can secure the services of the full-back before next month's major competition.
