Saints boss won’t sell his young stars.
Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has warned Manchester United not to waste their time in bidding for starlet full back Luke Shaw, Sky Sports reports.
Reports have suggested that David Moyes could turn his attention to the 18-year-old should he successfully fail to raid former club Everton for Leighton Baines but the Argentinian has said that neither Shaw, nor any of his other star players will be sold and are all happy at the club.
“We haven’t received any contact from Manchester United but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were interested in our very good players,” he said.
“They have shown they are very good players and that they will be able to compete in any big team.
“There hasn’t been contact and if there was it would be rejected because I think all these players are very happy playing here and we are very happy having them here playing for us.”
Pochettino has been one of the Premier League’s busiest managers this summer, having already spent £30 million on the likes of Daniel Osvaldo, Victor Wanyama and Dejan Lovren, and he now claims to be happy with the squad he has at his disposal.
“At the moment we are expecting to see what the transfer window offers us or doesn’t offer us so we are keeping an eye on what’s happening.
“Overall we are happy with what we’ve signed.
“We are keeping our eye on the market but we are happy with what we’ve signed and it wouldn’t be a problem if we didn’t sign anyone else.
“Of course, across the board with all the teams everybody is expecting to maybe add a player to enhance their squad.”
