Mane won't be sold in January - Koeman

United in 'advanced' Luke Shaw talks

Luke Shaw has been on international duty with England at the World Cup.

Luke Shaw's move from Southampton to Manchester United appears to be edging closer with sources telling ESPN FC the clubs are in "advanced talks" over a deal.

A report in the Daily Mirror on Tuesday suggested United were willing to pay 34 million pounds to secure Shaw's services, but ESPN FC sources insist the initial fee being discussed for the teenager is not so inflated.

However, United remain the only club to have lodged a firm bid for Shaw, with his desire to join United having been expressed to Southampton officials.

ESPN FC reported in January and again last month that United were confident of signing Shaw and it appears the talks are now reaching a conclusion.

Southampton stated last month that they would not sanction further sales of players until their new manager was in place, with Ronald Koeman's appointment earlier this month setting the wheels in motion on the Shaw deal.

While Koeman has expressed a desire to hold on to Shaw for another year at least, all involved appreciate the size of the potential transfer fee will make it tough for Southampton to reject United's advances.

Saints do, however, remain hopeful of persuading skipping Adam Lallana to stay at the club, despite the England midfielder expressing an interest in following striker Rickie Lambert to Liverpool.
