Looks like Luke Shaw’s staying at Southampton for the foreseeable future then.
With Liverpool reportedly highly interested in Shaw according to the Telegraph, the Saints have slapped a tacit ‘hands off’ label on their English international, by setting his price tag at a whopping £30 million, according to the Star.
The nominal fee would be a world record for a full-back.
It’s either an classic bargaining ploy designed to lure the suitors in, or an emphatic insistence that they have no intention of selling.
But given that Southampton are a selling club with a history of getting great deals on their homegrown products, the former is the more probable scenario…
Ready to negotiate, Liverpool?
