Southampton star Luke Shaw has revealed that he is flattered by the reported interest from Manchester United and Chelsea for his services.

The outgoing Premier League champions and the west London club were linked with a move in signing the talented left-back in the upcoming transfer window. If the reports are to be believed, United are ahead of Chelsea for Shaw's signature.

The 18-year-old says he is focusing on Southampton's remaining two fixtures. Shaw claims his focus is on the football and hinted he will decide his future at the end of the season.

"It's a good thing to be linked with them, but I don't concentrate with that stuff. I've got football to focus on. That's my only thinking," Shaw told Sky Sports.

"(Southampton) is a great club, I'm still young and I've got plenty to learn. It's all rumours. I'm just focusing on the two games I've got left and then see what happens."

With Shaw's latest comments, United and Chelsea are likely to have a summer battle in signing the defender. The Red Devils are believed to keen on signing Southampton's talented left-back.

United allowed David Moyes leave the club, just after 10 months into six-year contract. Earlier, reports suggested Shaw would not make a move to Old Trafford until the Red Devils appoint a permanent manager.

The Saints defender came up through the ranks of Southampton youth system. He broke into the first team in 2012 and has been a regular inclusion in his side's back four ever since. In this campaign, Shaw has started in 33 league games.

The left-back's impressive form for the club has seen him receive a call from Roy Hodgson for the national side. Shaw is delighted to be a key figure for Southampton and says the time when he featured for the Three Lions was the best feeling of his career.

"It's been unbelievable. For me to be 18 and to have played 30-odd games in the Premier League is something I wouldn't have even dreamed of when I was younger," Southampton left-back said.

"And England was probably the best feeling of my life. So I'm going to keep pushing myself to become a better player," he added.
