The Saints boss says owner Katharina Liebherr and chairman Ralph Krueger will decide Shaw's long-term future, amid reports the 18-year-old would prefer a summer move to Manchester United ahead of Chelsea.

That's the first time I've heard about that, it's news to me.At the end of the day Luke Shaw is a player that belongs to Southampton, and it will be the club, Southampton, that makes the decision as to what happens with his future.
