Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City are battling it out to sign Southampton's highly-rated left-back Luke Shaw, who wants to leave St Mary's, according to the Telegraph.

The 18-year-old is unsettled following yesterday's developments at St Mary's, where Nicola Cortese resigned as chairman of the club.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is now reportedly on the brink of quitting the south-coast club, while it's believed that several members of the first-team squad are also considering their futures.

The Premier League's top clubs now hope to sign Shaw who is widely regarded as the natural successor to England's Ashley Cole at international level.

The Express report that Chelsea have already had a £21m offer rejected for the youngster - a deal comprised of £15m in cash plus £6m-rated full-back Ryan Bertrand - but it's expected that the Blues, along with others, will continue to tempt the in-crisis Saints into selling their prized asset.

It's well known that Shaw is a boyhood Chelsea fan, but it's currently unclear whether he would prefer a move to Stamford Bridge over Old Trafford, the Etihad Stadium or elsewhere.
