Luke Shaw tells teammates he will join Manchester United

Southampton left-back Luke Shaw has informed teammates at St Mary’s that he will sign for Manchester United this summer.

The 18-year-old, who is reportedly on the verge of securing a £27m move to Old Trafford, has told pals at Southampton that he has played his final match for the south-coast club, according to the Daily Mail, who report that Saints’ stars also expect manager Mauricio Pochettino to walk away from the club during the forthcoming weeks.

Shaw was named in Roy Hodgson’s 23-man England squad on Monday - ahead of Chelsea’s Ashley Cole - following a second superb Premier League campaign with Southampton. The teenager made a total of 36 appearances for the club, producing mature displays on a weekly basis.

Manchester United are determined to secure Shaw’s services before next month’s World Cup finals - and before Chelsea, Manchester City or another interested club decide to meet Southampton’s valuation of the player.

The Red Devils are reportedly offering Shaw a staggering £100,000-a-week to replace Patrice Evra, who could join Nemanja Vidic at Inter Milan next season. And, if these latest reports are to be believed, Manchester United have managed to persuade the boyhood Chelsea fan to come to Old Trafford, even though the club are currently managerless and out of Europe.

Netherlands head coach Louis van Gaal is expected to be confirmed as United’s new manager either tomorrow or on Friday.
