It's a lot to pay, but if Shaw really can be our left-back for a decade then it'll be good value for money. This is of course, the second transfer wrapped up in as many days after United bagged Ander Herrera yesterday.
"I am thrilled and excited to be joining Manchester United. I have been at Southampton since I was eight years old and I would like to thank them and the fans for everything they have done for me. I want to continue to progress my career and joining United is the ideal place for me to do that. I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life and also looking forward to learning from the world-class players and management at the club."
And Ryan Giggs, doing most of the PR work in the absence of Louis van Gaal, added:
"Luke is a very talented young left-back with great potential. He has developed immensely during his time at Southampton and has all the attributes to become a top player. I am delighted he has joined Manchester United as I believe this is the right club for him to continue his development as a young player and eventually fulfil that promise."
