Manchester United have been hit by Southampton’s new £40million valuation of Luke Shaw, Daily Mail reports.

United were in pole position to sign Shaw after reportedly agreeing personal terms and a £30million fee, but new Saints manager Ronald Koeman is keen on keeping the English left-back.

Man United boss Louis van Gaal was looking to make Shaw, 19, his first marquee signing of the summer, but has been set back by the £10million increase on his price tag.

Shaw had an impressive campaign in the Premier League last season, attracting interest from Chelsea as well as the Red Devils.

But the Blues were unwilling to meet the Saints initial £30million demands, opening the door for a United move.

However with Southampton’s new stance, Man United could potentially withdraw their interest altogether as they prepare for life without Champions League football since 1995.

Koeman is willing to do everything in order to keep his star players, which could also influence the sale of Adam Lallana to Liverpool.

Dejan Lovren is also interested by the Reds, after the Croatian defender put in a transfer request.

    That’s a joke ! He’s not even worth 20M. He defends well but he’s not very comfortable going forward and his crosses are poor and approximate at best. Utd should pull out and go for better & cheaper alternatives.
