Man United now in move to sign two exciting gems “set to complete Old Trafford transfer”

The talented Fletcher twins, Jack and Tyler, who are midfielders for Manchester City and the sons of former Manchester United star Darren Fletcher, have attracted the attention of their father’s former club. Manchester United has reportedly made an attempt to sign them.

Recent transfer news surrounding Manchester United indicates that they may have a busy summer ahead, especially with Champions League football returning to Old Trafford for the 2023-24 season under manager Erik ten Hag’s second year in charge.

While the club is also expected to make signings for their academy, they were believed to be prioritizing the acquisition of a new midfielder and forward. According to reliable reporter David Ornstein of The Athletic, Manchester United has made a move to secure the services of the 16-year-old Fletcher twins after they impressed at Manchester City’s academy. Ornstein reports that United contacted City last week to initiate negotiations, and it seems that the Fletcher twins are now set to cross the Manchester divide and join United in a deal that is expected to involve a substantial fee.

“Man Utd launches a bid to acquire Man City’s 16-year-old midfielders Jack and Tyler Fletcher. The twin sons of MUFC technical director Darren Fletcher have excelled while attending the MCFC academy and are about to cross the border for a substantial price,” stated Ornstein. He also mentioned that the talented twins, who are among the most outstanding Under-16 players in the UK, will continue playing under schoolboy registrations and will be eligible to sign professional contracts when they turn 17 in March 2024.

In addition to the potential signings of the Fletcher twins, Manchester United is also looking to bolster their first team in the upcoming months. One prominent target is Mason Mount from Chelsea, but a recent £40 million offer for him was rejected. Alongside Mount, there have been rumors linking Kim Min-jae from Napoli to a move to Old Trafford. Despite Bayern Munich reportedly showing interest, the South Korean international is said to be on his way to Manchester.

Furthermore, the ongoing takeover saga at Manchester United is expected to be resolved, with Sheikh Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe awaiting news on the acceptance of their bids. In the midst of this uncertainty, it seems that the potential signings of Jack and Tyler Fletcher are progressing well, presenting a potentially clever double deal for the club.
