Manchester United certainly aren’t taking ‘No’ for an answer from Southampton over Luke Shaw.
Having come in with a January bid for Shaw, and seeing it rejected, United came back with a fresh £27million bid once the summer transfer window opened last month.
So it’s a case of hoping for ‘third time lucky’, as United have have upped their bid to £34million according to The Mirror – which would be a record for an English teenager.
As the Mirror point out, the Saints are under no particular pressure to sell, so this could prove quite the transfer imbroglio.
Now United play the waiting game, and see if Southampton can turn down this sensational offer.
