Luke Shaw has become the most expensive teenage footballer in history after he completed his £27million move to Manchester United.

Shaw, 18, passed a medical at the club's Carrington training ground on Thursday evening and the following day he signed a four-year contract, with the option of another year.

The deal is understood to be worth £27million, plus add-ons. That figure eclipses the £25.6million fee United paid for Wayne Rooney in 2004.

"Manchester United is delighted to announce the signing of Luke Shaw from Southampton Football Club," a United statement read.
