Manchester United looking to sign Harvey Neville, son of Phil, from Valencia – report

Manchester United are looking at signing Harvey Neville, son of Class of ’92 member Phil, from La Liga side Valencia.

Harvey started his footballing career at United, training at Carrington at a young age, and briefly played for rivals Manchester City until his Dad became assistant coach at Valencia in 2015.

With Phil moving his entire family out to Spain, Harvey joined Valencia and has quickly established himself as one of their best prospects.

Now aged 14, Harvey has stayed at Valencia despite Phil and uncle Gary leaving Los Che leaving their managerial roles at the Mestalla.

United, as well as Tottenham Hotspur, will now look to poach the Englishman from Valencia according to the Spanish outlet Super Deporte.

The Reds have one of the finest scouting set-ups in the world, and under Ed Woodward’s watch have appointed almost 50 new scouts.

Very few players slip through the net for United, with the academy bringing in more players from abroad every year.

This summer saw Arnau Puigmal arrive from Espanyol, Aliou Traore from Sarcelles, Ethan Galbraith from Northern Ireland, Dishon Bernard from Chelsea and Largie Ramazani from Charlton Athletic.

Previous years have seen the arrivals of players like Tahith Chong, signed from Feyenoord.

However, with Harvey being English and having previously played at Carrington, this is slightly different.

The Neville family have spoken frequently about enjoying life in Spain, but an offer from their club, the side Harvey’s Dad and uncle played for, would surely be irresistible.
