Manchester United signs Luke Shaw

Manchester United has signed Southampton left-back Luke Shaw for a fee of over £30million. A huge sum of money for a player that is just 18-years-old, but his age didn’t prevent him from making England’s World Cup roster.

That was after an initial offer of £27million.

“I am thrilled and excited to be joining Manchester United,” Shaw said, via the club’s website. “I have been at Southampton since I was eight years old and I would like to thank them and the fans for everything they have done for me. I want to continue to progress my career and joining United is the ideal place for me to do that. I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life and also looking forward to learning from the world-class players and management at the club.”

“Luke is a very talented young left-back with great potential. He has developed immensely during his time at Southampton and has all the attributes to become a top player,” Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs said. “I am delighted he has joined Manchester United as I believe this is the right club for him to continue his development as a young player and eventually fulfil that promise.”
