Blind rejected Utd coach role

Manchester United

Pellegrini quiet over Luke Shaw interest

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini played down talk that he will make a move for Southampton left-back Luke Shaw, while insisting that the January transfer window is not a priority for him.

City have been linked with the 30 million pound-rated defender, who is also a reported target for Chelsea and Manchester United.

But although there is uncertainty about Saints players' futures after the departure of executive chairman Nicola Cortese, Shaw, 18, who signed a new five-year contract at the club last summer, will not be on his way to the Etihad Stadium, according to Pellegrini.

“No, no, no. I don’t confirm about any names because we are not concerned about that in this moment,” he said. “We are just thinking about Cardiff [on Saturday] and not the winter transfer window.

“During the whole of January we will see what happens, all the clubs can do transfers, but I am not interested in one name especially. I don’t say nothing about it.”

City’s current left-backs are Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov, who has been in fine form this season.

Centre-back Joleon Lescott is a target for West Ham but City are yet to receive an offer for the England international.

And Pellegrini added: “I am not talking about transfers at this moment because it is not our priority.”
