The Louis van Gaal era is getting exciting with each passing day. After signing midfielder Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao, Manchester United have bought left-back, Luke Shaw from Southampton for £30 million. This move makes Shaw the world’s most expensive teenager.

The young English star has joined United on a four-year contract worth £100,000 a week. Having made his debut for Southampton (in 2012) at the age of 16, Shaw has made 67 appearances for the Saints.

Following his medical, Shaw said, "I am thrilled and excited to be joining Manchester United. I want to continue to progress my career and joining United is the ideal place for me to do that."

Describing Man United as “the biggest club in the world”, Luke Shaw said, 

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 when I grew up and, coming to Manchester United, that’s the one thing they like to do.

With two promising young players already signed, Louis van Gaal would possibly look for another one or two players to add to his squad.

Whom do you think United should now buy? Let me know in the comments below.
