Pellegrini downplays £30m Shaw move
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has downplayed talk that he will make a January move for Southampton left-back Luke Shaw.
City have been linked with Shaw, rated at £30 million, who is also a reported target for Chelsea and Manchester United.
But although there is uncertainty about players' futures at Southampton after the departure of executive chairman Nicola Cortese, Shaw, who signed a new five-year contract last summer, will not be on his way to the Etihad Stadium, according to Pellegrini.
Asked about signing Shaw, Pellegrini replied: "No, no, no. I don't confirm about any names because we are not concerned about that in this moment. We are just thinking about Cardiff [on Saturday] and not the winter transfer window.
"During the whole of January we will see what happens, all the clubs can do transfers, but I am not interested in one name especially. I don't say nothing about it."
City's current left-backs are Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov, who has been in fine form this season.
