Shaw Attracts Interest Of Top Clubs

Southampton’s Luke Shaw at his 18 years of age is already attracting the interest of top Premier League clubs as well as receiving the support of Michael Owen. The former star of Liverpool has stated that Luke Shaw is ready to play for a team such as Manchester United.

Michael Owen said: ‘’I think it's always good to keep progressing up the ladder and to play at the highest standard. And once you have had the experience that Luke Shaw has had in the Premier League, I think you are certainly ready for that challenge now’’.

‘’Having had the first-team experience he has, and now going to a World Cup, I'd say he is more than ready to join a really big club if Southampton let him go’’.

Even his young age, Luke Shaw has already received a number of noteworthy accolades which includes being selected as the left back in the PFA Team of the Year of the 2013-14 season as well as being named as one of the 6 players on the shortlist for the PFA Young Player of the award during the same campaign.

Shaw has even been selected by Roy Hodgson as one of the players that the coach will be bringing with him to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup which is evidence of the trust that people have in the young defender.

Michael Owen continued on saying that players like Luke Shaw is just what Manchester United need in order to build and create players for the future and avoid any more disappointing seasons such as this one that recently concluded.

‘’They are a huge club with a huge stadium, and I presume they are going to get a huge manager as well. I wouldn't have thought they will be coming seventh again next season, put it that way. I think they will be right back in the mix’’.

‘’But they are going to have to buy quality players like Luke Shaw, and particularly in defence, because they have lost Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, and there is talk about Patrice Evra as well’’. Owen added on.
