Shaw said that Manchester United manager Lous van Gaal's criticism of his fitness was accurate, reports Sky Sports.

Van Gaal made Shaw train alone after saying that the new signing did not have the level of fitness the manager required of him, and the defender did not start against Inter Milan on Tuesday as a result. The defender openly agreed with the decision, saying that the new formation requires a higher level of fitness than he currently has.

Shaw signed a four-year contract with Manchester United on Friday after transferring from Southampton, the club's official web site reports.

The 18-year-old moves over in a 30 million move, which would be the third-highest fee ever paid for a defender following David Luiz's move from Chelsea to PSG earlier this summer for 50 million, which was preceded by Thiago Silva's 35 million move from AC Milan to PSG. With those kinds of figures, Shaw will have plenty of pressure on him to perform, but he will undoubtedly be given an immediate spot in the first team at Old Trafford.

Manchester United and Southampton have agreed to a transfer fee for Shaw and are expected to finalize the defender's move on Friday, reports Sky Sports.

Shaw has already completed a medical exam, and now awaits finalization of the deal. He returned to England with the rest of the country's World Cup team earlier this week, and will bolster United's left-side defense.

Shaw is expected to replace the injured Leighton Baines (hamstring) in the starting XI for England's final World Cup match Tuesday against Costa Rica, the BBC reports.

The 18 year old Shaw, who has been linked to a Manchester United transfer this summer, will be making his first World Cup start for the Three Lions. England have already been eliminated from the knockout stage, but Costa Rica will be looking to grab at least a draw to clinch the top spot in Group D.

Manchester United offered 27 million for Shaw, reports Sky Sports.

Shaw just signed a new five-year contract with Southampton last July, but United are working hard to fill the left-back position. Patrice Evra's contract expires this summer, and a replacement appears to be one of the club's top priorities this summer.

Manchester United are expected to make Shaw the club's first signing of the summer ahead of Chelsea because United can offer more first-team opportunities, reports the Daily Mail.

Shaw is apparently more attracted to United over Chelsea due to guaranteed playing time, and is reportedly ready to make the switch if the two sides can come to agreement. Manchester United are expected to spend a lot this summer to reconfigure the team, and Shaw has been a consistent rumor in that mix.
