Man United confirms signing of Neville


English Premier League club Man United have confirmed that Harvey Neville has signed his first professional contract with the club.

Apparently, Neville is a familiar name at the Old Trafford as they had Gary Neville, a club legend and now TV pundit at the club in the past.

However, the U-19 Republic of Ireland midfielder is the son of a former Red Devils player and coach Phil Neville and a nephew to Gary Neville.

Reacting to his new professional contract, Harvey Neville said “Proud to have signed my first professional
contract with @manchesterunited,” on Instagram.

“Thank you to all my family and coaches for their support.”

Man United will be hoping to have the teenage midfielder follow the footsteps of his father and uncle to be able to record success at the Old Trafford.

It is expected that United fans will now see more of Harvey Neville especially in the coming season and he could be a part of the club’s preseason programmes.

For now, the Man United team is focused on qualifying to the Champions League next season, with the hope that they can win their remaining games this season.

There are five games left and the Red Devils are two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
