Charlie McNeil is considered one of the hottest prospects in England right now.
The English forward, 18, currently plays for Manchester United – and has even earned himself a £1million sponsorship deal with Adidas. McNeil, who has scored over 600 goals at youth level, is already making a huge name for himself at the club.
His talent was recognised in In 2018 when signed a six-year deal with Adidas that could potentially rise to £1million. He was actually snatched from Manchester City in October 2020 for £750,000 – but McNeil started life at United before moving to City in 2014, before making a welcome return back to the Red Devils. And his career has gone from strength to strength ever since.
His record is incredible. For the Citizen’s Under-15s, he scored 110 goals in 72 games, also providing 38 assists to boot. Then United fought off competition from Juventus and RB Leipzig to bring the player back to Old Trafford, where he has been for two years now.
According to the Manchester Evening News, United sources are mightily impressed with the player, describing him as ‘ridiculously good’ during training.

Another said: “Darwin Nunez or promote Charlie McNeil his good talent from Man United academy.” A third wrote: “Two players I look forward to under Ten Haag: Ronaldo and Charlie McNeil.”
