Where it was initially thought Manchester United had convinced Southampton to part with Luke Shaw for £34 million, the Saints are now said to have rejected that offer and are holding out for something closer to £40 million.

You can’t really blame them. Not only is Shaw a key figure in the team, he’s also generated prolonged interest from two of the biggest clubs in the Premier League. Hiking up the price should be considered a smart move.

But United should be looking elsewhere. Not only is the teenager not worth that price, this World Cup is also showcasing a number of talents who could offer just as much as the England international.

With Louis van Gaal set to arrive at Old Trafford later this summer, these are six alternatives to Shaw he and United should consider.
