Man United set to seal another young striker deal


English Premier League outfit have been doing very well with the recruit of youth players in this summer transfer window, more than what has been experienced with the senior team.

The latest to be heard from the English Press is that the Red Devils will win the race to land Man City youngster Charlie McNeil as he has decided to leave the club for another experience.

A number of European clubs have been paying attention to Charlie McNeil with The Mail reporting in July that the Red Devils were ahead of all of his suitors across Europe.

However, the Sun is now reporting that the Red Devils have not quit the race for Charlie McNeil despite the silence from the media, adding that they are set to pay £1 million for the 16-year-old.

Meanwhile, Man City are not willing to lose the player completely and are reported to be negotiating various clauses in the deal which is already in the Tribunal.

Should the Red Devils capture Charlie McNeil, he will be the third signing by the club this summer transfer window for the youth team after Joe Hugill and Alejandro Granacho from Sunderland and Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid respectively.
