Southampton left-back Luke Shaw is one of the hottest transfer commodities of the summer, and he has been frequently linked to English giants Manchester United.

One United fan reached out to Shaw on Twitter, wishing he'd complete the move.

His response was surprising.

While favouriting a tweet is in no way conclusive, it is surprising that he would apparently endorse the suggestion of a transfer. Favourited tweets are, after all, viewable by the public, and it doesn't take much to set alight another round of transfer rumours in the tabloids.

Here's the link to his favourites page, which at the time of publishing includes the Manchester United tweet.
