Manchester United refusing to pay £40million for Luke Shaw

Manchester United are still keen on bringing Luke Shaw through the Old Trafford doors this summer, but the Manchester a Evening News are claiming that United are refusing to pay over the odds for the young left-back from Southampton.

It was widely reported that United made a £28million bid for Shaw on the final day of last season, but fresh reports suggest Southampton have demanded a huge £40million fee for the 18-year old.

United are willing to lodge a maximum bid of £34million to land Shaw, but the £40million being quoted by Southampton is utterly ridiculous.

Personally I feel that £34million is way too much already, for someone who could yet turn into a flop as he is still unproven at the highest level. With other, cheaper alternatives available, Manchester United must be seriously considering their options before upping their bid for Shaw.

what is a suitable fee for Luke Shaw? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
