Mauricio Pochettino has warned off prospective suitors of Southampton left-back Luke Shaw that the club are not willing to sell the defender, stating that professionally, “he is not for sale.”
Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham have all shown interest in the talented England defender, with the Blues hoping to use him replace ageing Ashley Cole.
Shaw is regarded as one of the best young talents in the league after coming through Southampton’s ranks.
Pochettino is not surprised that the youngster is attracting interest from other clubs, but is adamant they do not need to sell Shaw.
“They can show their interest,” said Pochettino.
“That’s not something we control.
“But in this individual case he is not a player we are willing to sell. In a sporting manner, he is not for sale.”
