Premier League star McNeil officially opens up about possible Manchester United transfer
Dwight Mcneil has opened up about the possibly move to Manchester United during the January transfer window.
After having a very difficult transfer window at United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to delve into his transfer kitty during the January window and try to land a few players that can come in and get the club challenging for that top four spot.
The Red Devils have had a very inconsistent start to the new season and find themselves already well out the chase for a top four spot, and Solskjaer knows that he needs to add some real quality in certain areas of the pitch in order to get United challenging again, and to save his job.
But despite the reports linking United with some world class signings, they have also reportedly shown an interest in McNeil, as the 19-year-old has developed into a key player for Burnley manager Sean Dyche, featuring in 11 Premier League fixtures for the Clarets this season.
But McNeil has admitted that he is just focusing on his football, and not the transfer speculation, he said on the Daily Express: ‘The gaffer [Dyche] just calls it “outside noise”. ‘I’ve got to focus on my football and if that comes around it comes around in time. The lads here and the gaffer try to keep me level-headed and help me keep my feet on the ground.
‘I think the most important thing is for me to concentrate on my football and see where that takes me in the future.
‘You can’t get too far ahead of yourself because I’m still 19, I’m still young, I’m learning and I’m still maturing as a person and a player. We’ll just have to see what happens.
‘My aim is to keep playing every week. All I want to do is play football for Burnley. I just want to keep playing and keep improving.’
Look the lad is talented enough and gifted enough to develop into a decent player in the coming seasons, but we have said it before and we will say it again, United need to buy ready-made players that are able to come in and make an impact now, not players that are not ready to play for a huge side like United.
