Having been linked with the club for months, Luke Shaw’s move to Manchester United was finally confirmed today, with the player revealing his happiness in signing for the biggest club in the world.

“It’s a great feeling,” said Shaw. “It’s been going quite a long time and I’ve known for a number of weeks that United were interested in me. I was hoping it might have been done before the World Cup but it wasn’t and now I’m finally here, getting it done. I’m very pleased and can’t believe it has happened. Manchester United is the biggest club in the world and is always going to be up there with the best. I think the main reason I’ve come here is because United want to win trophies and so do I. As a young lad, I aspired to win trophies.”
