Manchester City are ready to make Southampton youngster Luke Shaw the biggest fullback signing in history. The Mail on Sunday says City are ready to flex their financial muscle and pay a world-record £30million in January for Shaw.
Shaw, 18, is regarded as England's long-term successor to Ashley Cole and City accept they will have to break the world-record fee for a full-back to get him - beating the £29.5m paid by Barcelona for Dani Alves in 2008. Talent: Southampton's Luke Shaw could be the subject of a £30million bid from Manchester City.
