• Man Utd reportedly are in talks with Man City over McNeill's transfer
  • McNeill has scored over 600 goals in his youth career
  • He had started his career at Old Trafford

Manchester United are reportedly in talks with Pep Guardiola’s Man City to decide on a fee for striker Charlie McNeill after the teenage sensation made it clear that he wants to leave the Etihad side this summer.

The 16-year-old, who is currently with Man City’s academy, has scored over 600 goals in his youth career so far, and ahead of the upcoming transfer market, he is understood to have turned down a new deal with the four-time Premier League champions.

“It’s been such a pleasure to play with some amazing players and I’ve made some amazing friends too. Thanks to all the staff and players for helping me develop as a player and also as a person,” McNeill wrote on his Instagram account in June.

McNeill kickstarted his career at Old Trafford six years ago before moving to rivals Man City, where he tasted much success to earn the attention of his maiden club once again.

According to English publication Daily Mail, Man Utd have begun negations with Man City over a fee for McNeill’s transfer. The report further has revealed that since the England youth national does not turn 17 until September, the two clubs have to agree to a fee "or risk the financials being ruled on at tribunal."

Considering McNeill’s goal-scoring exploits at the club and international level, Man Utd are expected to shell out a seven-figure sum for the talented forward.

McNeill has always been a Red Devils supporter, who spent his early years with their junior sides before making the switch to Man City.

It is understood that even though Man City do not want to be a hindrance in the young player’s way, they sure want to cash in on the player, considering other clubs such as Wolves and Leeds United, who recently got promoted to the Premier League, are also tracking the teenager.

The English young player has also gained attention from German club RB Leipzig who are keen to bring the exciting forward to Bundesliga, especially since they had signed Noah Ohio from Man City in a similar move last year.
