Southampton reject Man United’s £27m bid for Luke Shaw [Guardian]

On Sunday night it emerged that Manchester United had submitted a £27m bid for Southampton left back Luke Shaw.

On Monday 18 year old Luke Shaw was picked by Roy Hodgson in his World Cup squad, beating Ashley Cole to a seat on the plane.

Luke Shaw’s crazy 24 hours continued, as the Guardian confirmed that Southampton had rejected the huge bid from Manchester United.

News also emerged on Monday night of Rio Ferdinand’s impending exit at old Trafford, with the 35 year old defender confirming he would continue his career elsewhere.

With Vidic and Ferdinand leaving in the middle, will Man United lodge a second bid for the highly rated left back?
