Man Utd are looking to bring back Burnley 35m rated 19 y/o winger

According to The Sun, Man Utd are keeping tabs on £35 million Burnley winger, Dwight McNeil. This is the same player that they dumped 5 years ago.

The 19-year-old has been a stand out performer for Burnley so far this season. It looks like Man Utd are now regretting getting rid of the midfielder.

McNeil was released from the academy team at aged just 14. This was because he didn’t meet the standards. He was also poor at set-pieces.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sent scouts out in recent weeks to keep an eye on England Under 21 international.

Man Utd must meet Burnley valuation

It is understood that Burnley wants around £35 million for their man. Even if Man Utd reach those requirements, they could still be rejected.

It is looking like Burnley want to keep hold of the midfielder.

Dwight McNeil

The 19-year-old is a huge red devils fan despite being dumped from Old Trafford.

Scouts from Old Trafford apparently went to watch him when Burnley played Chelsea a few weeks ago. They got to see him score in a 4-2 loss.

Burnley’s 19 y/o winger linked to Juventus, could he be the next Sancho export?

Another English youngster is linked with a move away to one of Europe’s most elite clubs.

Dwight McNeil is a 19-year-old Englishman from Rochdale, who played in 21 games for The Clarets in the 18/19 Premier League season. McNeil made the most of the trust given to him by Sean Dyche as he clinched three goals and five assists, as well as making a name for himself. Last season was his breakthrough season.

Now, in summer of 2019, Juventus have taken a keen interest in him after some fantastic performances for England’s under-20s. The Italian giants will wait until August to pursue the speedy winger as he can further demonstrate his skills during pre-season.

McNeil could follow the likes of Jadon Sancho, who left Manchester City to play in Germany with Borussia Dortmund. Becoming their star player and would now surely walk through the doors of any club in the world. Sancho cost Dortmund £8million at the age of 17.

However, Sean Dyche is holding out for approximately £30million for McNeil, as the likes of Juventus and Spurs are sniffing around the Englishman.

McNeil has a contract at Burnley until 2023, with the option to extend for a year. He is a bright and blooming talent at Turf Moor, hence the hefty price tag. Furthermore, such a price tag could be a huge overestimation, purposely employed as a method to keep the wonderkid at the club.

Should he remain with Sean Dyche’s men for another season, the Premier League fans would be grateful that such a talent will be on our screens for a further year. Burnley fans, however, will be ecstatic.
