Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Lyon teenager Florent Da Silva, according to the latest reports.

French outlet L’Equipe (via the Mirror) state that the Red Devils have upped their pursuit of the 16-year-old and that a bid is now considering ‘imminent’.

Negotiations between United and Lyon are believed to be at a ‘very advanced’ stage, with the midfielder out of contract next summer and seemingly no sign he will sign a new deal.

No fee has yet been agreed between the two parties however, with United looking to buy out the final year of Da Silva’s contract as he seeks a new club.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to be keen on a ‘youth revolution’ of sorts at Old Trafford as he seeks to overhaul the current squad.

Roma’s 20-year-old playmaker Nicolo Zainolo has been linked, while Monaco teenager Hannibal Mejbri has also been the subject of a bid from United.

The signings of full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace and winger Daniel James from Swansea City have already been completed, while Newcastle’s Sean Longstaff also appears to be a major target.
