SAINTS starlet Luke Shaw is reported to have told Saints that he wanted to leave the club on the final day of last season.
The England international left back apparently informed Saints of his desire to join Manchester United just hours after the 1-1 draw with the Red Devils at St Mary's on May 11.
The Daily Echo last week reported that both Adam Lallana and Shaw were keen to leave, and wanted their futures sorted out prior to the World Cup starting.
But that is unlikely to happen, with any transfers now expected to take place after the tournament in Brazil which starts this Thursday.
Shaw and Lallana both signed new five year contracts with Saints in 2013.
