Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Lyon teenager Florent Da Silva, according to reports in France.
There is expected to be a lot more movement at Old Trafford before the transfer window shuts and the club have been linked with another name today.
The report adds that a bid from United is ‘imminent’ with the young talent out of contract next summer, with other clubs in Europe monitoring his situation.
Da Silva, who has only played senior football for Lyon’s reserves in the French fourth tier, is looking at the ‘best project’ for him as United want to buy out the final year of his contract at the Ligue 1 club.
The 16-year-old is considered one of the club’s top talents despite not yet training with the first team squad.
