Luke Shaw is confident he can reach the left-back standards set by Patrice Evra and Denis Irwin at Manchester United.
And the 19-year-old feels the presence of his parents in the area after their relocation from Surrey will enable him to keep improving at Old Trafford.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “There is Patrice Evra and Denis Irwin that are top quality left-backs and I just want to come here and prove to everyone that I can be just as good as them two legends.
“It’s a new surrounding for me but the best thing is that my family have come up with me.
“My Mum and Dad are here so I’m not just a 19-year-old living up here by myself.
“I have a good structure at home and good people around me.”
