Shaw joined the Southampton Academy at the age of seven in 2002, and by the age of 15, he was a regular on the under-18 team.

In September 2011, he made his debut appearance for the first team as an unused replacement in a League Cup match against Preston North End. Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City were said to be interested in signing 16-year-old Shaw during the January 2012 transfer window, with the then-Championship club apparently valuing the defender at £4 million.

Southampton soon responded, with then-manager Nigel Adkins telling the press that “Luke Shaw is a vital part of our future plans” and that the club had “no intention… of letting any of their young players move on.”

In August 2012, he made his first start for Southampton, playing the full 90 minutes in a 4–1 League Cup win over Stevenage, and on 10 November 2012, he became the club’s youngest player to start a Premier League match when he was selected to play at left-back against Swansea City, completing 74 minutes of the 1–1 draw.

Shaw signed a new five-year contract with Southampton on his 18th birthday, July 12, 2013. During Southampton’s pre-season training, Shaw scored one goal, the latest in an 8–0 triumph over Spanish side Palamós on July 20, 2013.

Shaw was personally involved in the goal that saw Southampton beat West Bromwich Albion in the first match of the 2013–14 season when he was fouled in the penalty area by Youssouf Mulumbu in the 89th minute, with Rickie Lambert scoring the ensuing spot-kick to give the Saints the victory.

Shaw made his first appearance for Southampton in the FA Cup on 28 January 2012, replacing winger Jason Puncheon for the last 13 minutes of a 1–1 tie against Millwall.

Shaw, along with Jack Stephens, Caleb Chambers, and James Ward-Prowse, was one of four youth players handed a professional contract following the club’s promotion to the Premier League in May 2012.

Shaw became the most expensive teenager in world football when he signed a four-year deal (with an option to extend for another year) with Manchester United on June 27, 2014, for an undisclosed cost reported to be in the region of £30 million.

Chelsea was also interested in Shaw but decided against signing him because of the teenager’s high wage demands, which they feared would cause unrest in the dressing room.

Shaw made his debut in the club’s pre-season tour of the United States, appearing in the first 45 minutes of a 7–0 victory over the LA Galaxy.

He was sidelined for a month before the season started due to a hamstring injury. Shaw made his Manchester United debut as a substitute against Queens Park Rangers on September 14, 2014, in the club’s fourth league encounter.

He went unused in the team’s first win of the season. Shaw made his competitive debut for United on September 27, 2014, playing the full 2–1 home triumph against West Ham United after being an unused replacement in the previous defeat to Leicester City.

Shaw was placed on the 40-man shortlist for the 2014 Golden Boy Award, which honors the finest European-based player under the age of 21.

Shaw was sent off after earning a second yellow card during a 1–1 draw with West Ham on February 8, 2015.

Shaw returned to the starting lineup on April 18, 2015, replacing the injured Daley Blind. Shaw’s first action since March 2015 resulted in a 1–0 loss to league leaders Chelsea, but he put up a strong effort that captain Wayne Rooney applauded.

Shaw started every league match in the early 2015–16 season until 15 September 2015, when he was caught by Héctor Moreno with a slide tackle during the Champions League group stage opener against PSV and sustained a double leg fracture.

During the nine-minute pause in Eindhoven, Shaw was given oxygen and treated by nine medical personnel before being carried off on a stretcher and transferred to the hospital. Shaw missed six months of action before returning to training on April 4, 2016.

Shaw made his first competitive debut since his double leg fracture in September 2015 on August 7, 2016, as Manchester United defeated Leicester City 2–1 to win the 2016 FA Community Shield.

Shaw scored his first senior goal in Manchester United’s 2–1 victory over Leicester City in the league opener on August 10, 2018.

Shaw was also named the season’s first and second player of the month in August and September, respectively. On October 18, 2018, he signed a new five-year contract with United.

Shaw was named United’s player of the month for March on April 2nd, giving him a total of three this season.

Shaw was named Manchester United Player of the Year and Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year at the end of the season.

Luke Shaw scored his only goal of the season in a 3–0 FA Cup triumph over Derby County on March 5, 2020.

Shaw had two assists before being substituted at half-time in Manchester United’s Premier League record-equaling 9–0 home triumph over Southampton on February 2, 2021. Shaw scored his first league goal since August 2018 in a derby triumph over Manchester City on March 7.

Shaw’s first taste of international football came in 2011 when he played six times for England’s under-16 side.

In February, he made his international debut against Slovenia, followed by the Montaigu Tournament in April, when he scored his first international goal against Uruguay.

In August, he made his debut for the under-17 squad against Italy, and in a seven-month stint with the national team, he featured in eight matches.

Shaw was due to be called up to the England under-21 team for the first time in January 2013, for a friendly against Sweden the following month, with then-manager Stuart Pearce describing the Southampton defender as “an amazing talent.” He was forced to withdraw from the contest after suffering an injury during training.

The uncapped defender was then called up for matches against Romania on March 21, Austria on March 25, and Scotland on August 13, as well as the UEFA European Under-21 Championship, which he had to withdraw from due to the same reason.

On 5 September, he made his England under-21 debut against Moldova in a 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification match, then on 9 September, he played the entire 90 minutes of England’s second qualification match against Finland.

Shaw was called up to the England senior team for the first time on February 27, 2014, for a friendly against Denmark.

He made his match debut at halftime, replacing Ashley Cole. The match ended 1–0 in England’s favor. Shaw was included in Roy Hodgson’s 23-man team for the 2014 FIFA World Cup on May 12, 2014.

He was chosen over the more experienced Cole, who subsequently retired from international competition.

He was England’s second-choice left-back behind Leighton Baines, and he made his tournament debut in the final group encounter in Belo Horizonte, a 0–0 draw with Costa Rica.

He also bears the distinction of being the tournament’s youngest participant.
Shaw has been named to England’s UEFA Euro 2020 squad. Shaw scored the fastest goal in a European Championship final, with only two minutes on the clock, against Italy in the UEFA Euro 2020 Final on July 11, 2021.

His early goal, however, was not enough to win England their first major trophy in 55 years, as Italy won a penalty shootout after a 1–1 tie in extra time.
