Man United transfers: ‘Luke Shaw is a bargain at £31.5m’
Man United transfers: Luke Shaw's former coach believes that the Red Devils have snapped up a "bargain" despite £31.5m fee
Manchester United have snapped up a “bargain” by signing Luke Shaw for £31.5m, according to his former Southampton academy coach.
The Red Devils confirmed the signing of the 18-year-old left-back on Friday just a day after announcing the arrival of Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao.
You will see later on in life that he will be a bargain
The transfer has made Shaw the most expensive teenager in football history – but Paul Williams is certain that United will get value for their money.
“I think for that money you will see later on in life that he will be a bargain,” Williams told talkSPORT.
“Luke potentially has a long way to go in his development and you will see the best of him at Manchester United.”
Williams added: “Luke is a grounded person and an honest lad, he will be fine in that environment.
“Luke needs that challenge now, he’s at a stage where he needs to progress and to be tested on the pitch and off the pitch and he’ll get that at Man United.”
