Shaw flattered by Manchester United & Chelsea links

The Southampton youngster is also being lined up by Manchester City and says that he will “see what happens” in the summer as the big clubs queue up for his signature

Southampton defender Luke Shaw says that he is flattered to be linked with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea and will “see what happens” with regards to his future.

The teenage full-back has emerged as one of the Premier League’s brightest young talents, with his performances in 2013-14 earning him a place in the PFA Team of the Year, as well as seeing him finish third in the voting for the PFA Young Player of the Year.

And Shaw, who Goal understands is being tracked by Manchester City, United and Chelsea ahead of a summer transfer war for his signature, appreciates the interest from the Premier League’s big hitters but remains focused on a strong finish to the season with Southampton.

“It’s a good thing to be linked with them but I don’t concentrate with that stuff,” he told Sky Sports. “I’ve got football to focus on. That’s my only thinking.

“[Southampton] is a great club, I’m still young and I’ve got plenty to learn. It’s all rumours. I’m just focusing on the two games I’ve got left and then see what happens.”

Shaw made his first appearance for England earlier in the campaign, a 1-0 friendly win over Denmark back in February, and the 18-year-old World Cup hopeful admits that he was overwhelmed at making his debut for his country.

“England was probably the best feeling of my life,” he added. “I’m going to keep pushing myself to become a better player.

“It’s been unbelievable [my rise]. For me to be 18 and to have played 30-odd games in the Premier League is something I wouldn’t have even dreamed of when I was younger.”
