Man United transfers: Mauricio Pochettino insists that Luke Shaw is likely to stay at Southampton

Manchester United have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Luke Shaw after Mauricio Pochettino insisted that the player is likely to stay at Southampton.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a £30m swoop for the 18-year-old in recent weeks as David Moyes looks to bolster his defensive options ahead of the new season.

However, Pochettino has insisted that the England international still remains a part of Southampton’s plans.

“At the end of the day, Luke Shaw is a player that belongs to Southampton, and it will be the club that makes the decision as to what happens with his future,” he told reporters.

“Of course there will be interest for him, but right now he’s a player at Southampton and it looks as though it will continue that way.

“There are a lot of players who are under interest, but they are all very happy at the football club, and most of them are under long-term contracts.

“They understand the situation of what it means to be a professional player in the Premier League.

“There’s nothing really we have to speak about on that front. If there is any decision to be made, it is for the owners, not for me.”
