Southampton have warned Manchester United that Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana and all of their key players will not be leaving the club this summer.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a swoop for the Saints duo in recent weeks, with United reportedly ready to bid £30m for the talented pair as David Moyes looks to bolster his squad.

We do not need to sell any player Mauricio [Pochettino] wants to keep

However, Southampton director Hans Hofstetter has played down the chances of the duo leaving St Mary’s by insisting that manager Mauricio Pochettino will not be forced to sell any of his key personnel in the off-season.

“The most important point is that we are in a position where we do not need to sell any player Mauricio [Pochettino] wants to keep,” Hofstetter told BBC Radio Solent.

“We have a very strong squad and we are still in a situation where we are free enough to act quickly if quick action is asked from us.

“In the short time I have been at Southampton it has become abundantly clear that we are blessed with a staff that has all the necessary skills with which to progress, and now that we can supplement that with a strong board I am sure we will enjoy a successful future together.”
