Man Utd victims of 'revenge' transfer with Erik ten Hag set to lose youngster to Man City

Man Utd victims of 'revenge' transfer with Erik ten Hag set to lose youngster to Man City

Man Utd are set to lose a youngster to Man City.

Manchester United are set to lose a highly-rated youngster to Manchester City, according to reports.

United hope to sign Darren Fletcher’s twin sons, Jack and Tyler, from City before the end of the month.

The pair have been in the City academy for nine years, and have established themselves as two of the brightest prospect in their age group at the Etihad.

However, Jack and Tyler, 16, are also ever-presents in the Old Trafford director's box for United home games. Indeed, their father became technical director at United in 2021, having played 300 games and won 10 major trophies with the club between 2003 and 2015.

According to Mail Sport, Fletcher Snr is believed to be driving the effort to bring his sons to the red half of Manchester.

And City are reportedly looking to poach one of United’s most highly-rated academy stars in a “revenge” move.

City linked with Harrison Parker

According to the Manchester Evening News, City are set to sign centre-back Harrison Parker from the United academy after the club refused to meet his demands for a salary increase.

The 16-year-old was allegedly offered a competitive financial package but United were unwilling to break their salary structure to retain the youngster.

Parker joined United from the Arsenal academy two years ago and would have become a scholar at Old Trafford for the coming season.

The youngster only played three times for the Under-18s last term due to a long-term injury. Once he neared full fitness United reportedly sensed Parker had decided to leave and concluded he was not dedicated to the academy.

United are said to be comfortable with their options at centre-half with Tyler Fredricson and Louis Jackson both attaining England youth caps and playing a part in the triumphant FA Youth Cup run in 2022.

Meanwhile, Jack Kingdon has also played for Scotland Under-18s.
