Manchester United have received a big transfer boost in their pursuit of Burnley winger Dwight McNeil after his manager admitted that the Clarets will struggle to keep a player of his quality at the club.
According to Burnley manager Sean Dyche via his recent comments as monitored by the Daily Mirror, Dwight McNeil will eventually leave the Clarets as the club won’t be able to hold on to a quality player like the young winger.
Dwight McNeil has been the best player at Burnley for the best part of the last year and he’s said to be attracting serious interest from his former club Manchester United.

The 20-year-old winger was on the books at Manchester United before he was released by the club at the age of 14.
Dwight McNeil joined Burnley shortly after he was cut from the youth team at Old Trafford and he has not looked back since then.
He broke into the first team at Burnley at the start of the last campaign during their Europa League campaign before the young winger was introduced to the Premier League squad by Sean Dyche.
McNeil has scored once and provided four assists for Burnley in 16 Premier League appearances this term.
