MANCHESTER UNITED are set to raid rivals City for wonderkid Charlie McNeill for £750,000.
The 17-year-old England international has been a superstar at youth level, scoring more than 600 goals.
He has rejected a professional contract at the Etihad, and is now set to make the cross-city move to Old Trafford.
SunSports understands the talented teenager will cost around just under £1m, to stop going to a tribunal.
City are looking to add a number of clauses in the move, to stop Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side from benefiting too much in the future.
McNeill is a United supporter, and spent his early years at Old Trafford before a switch over to the blue half of Manchester.
