The 18 year old is set to make it into Roy Hodgson’s 2014 World Cup finals squad after Ashley Cole’s omission from the England set-up and an offer from the Old Trafford side could well be an attempt to land the teenager before the tournament begins this summer.

French veteran Patrice Evra looks set to leave Man United with his contract set to expire in a matter of weeks and Shaw could well be the ideal man to fill the void.

Shaw has matured into a consistent performer and is arguably one of the hottest young prospects in European football and a player Mauricio Pochettino may struggle to keep hold of.

Indeed a number of his over-achieving Saints side could be set for summer bids with the likes of Adam Lallana, Jay Rodriguez and Rickie Lambert sure to have more than their fair share of suitors.

Shaw started 35 of Southampton’s 38 Premier League fixtures this term.
