    Manchester United will reportedly preparing to launch a record-breaking £34million bid for Southampton starlet Luke Shaw in the coming weeks, according to The Independent.

    Earlier this month, the Saints had rejected a bid of £27m, who demanded at least £30m for Shaw, who turns 19 next month.

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been impressed by the England international and is desperate to bring him to Old Trafford as soon as the talented defender returns from Brazil.

    The teenage-youngster is believed to be one of LVG’s top summer transfer targets, as the 18-year-old will be the most expensive teenager in English football, if the deal goes through. Although he is widely seen as the ideal replacement for Patrice Evra at Old Trafford, who recently signed a new one-year contract with the Red Devils.

    The attacking left-back is known for his quick dribbles out of defence, who has made 60 senior appearances for the south coast club.
