Manchester United and Southampton reportedly agree a fee of £30m for defender Luke Shaw.

Manchester United have reportedly agreed a £30m deal with Southampton to sign highly-rated defender Luke Shaw this summer.

Shaw has been repeatedly linked with a switch to Old Trafford in the past, with former manager David Moyes believed to have seen a £27m bid knocked back last summer.

However, Sky Sports News claims that the Red Devils are finally closing in on their man and that they have agreed a big-money fee for the 18-year-old - which would see him become the world's most expensive teenager.

Earlier today, United boss Louis van Gaal wrapped up his first signing since been appointed after it was announced that the club had sealed a deal for Athletic Bilbao's Ander Herrera.
