 Southampton set Liverpool target Luke Shaws price tag at world record £30m [Star Sport]

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?
