Burnley winger Dwight McNeil has been strongly linked with a return to Manchester United this summer but that might need to wait till next year according to Lancashire Live.

It was revealed that the Red Devils won’t be able to sign the 20-year-old this summer due to lack of funds especially if they are able to conclude the transfer for Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid.

Marca says that Manchester United and Real Madrid are in advanced talks over the transfer of the left-back to Old Trafford.

Sergio Reguilon was said to have rejected the opportunity to return to Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla in favour of a transfer to Manchester United.

His transfer means that the Red Devils won’t have the funds required to pull off a move for Dwight McNeil.

McNeil started his career at Manchester United before he left the club for Burnley at the age of 14. He has been able to establish himself as one of the most exciting young wingers in the Premier League.

In one of his recent interviews, Burnley manager Sean Dyche said that it will take a very big offer for the Clarets to sell England junior international Dwight McNeil who’s clearly their prized asset.
