Transfer News: Manchester United could drop interest in Dwight McNeil

According to transfer news from Lancs Live, Manchester United could drop their interest in Dwight McNeil. As the deal for Jadon Sancho edges closer, it could see United abandon their alternative plans for the Burnley winger and former academy player.

The 20-year-old winger came through the youth ranks at United but left for Burnley in the summer of 2014. Having risen through the youth ranks with the Clarets, McNeil has become a first-team regular at Turf Moor.

To date, he has featured 107 times for the Burnley senior team, scoring 7 goals and setting up 16 for his teammates. McNeil was one of the Clarets’ key players despite them flirting near the relegation places. (h/t Transfermarkt)

United close to Sancho deal, could drop McNeil interest

Manchester United’s pursuit of Jadon Sancho has been the prime talking point over the week. It appears that United are actually closer than ever in getting the player they have been chasing for over a year. Provided the deal crosses the finish line, it would see United drop their interest in McNeil, who has been seen as an alternative.

Jadon Sancho is Manchester United’s top target

McNeil was also eyed by United last year as they failed to get the Sancho deal over the line. Nonetheless, it appears as if McNeil will not be a target for United anymore. Instead, there is a chance Aston Villa could go after him.
