After doing the double over their crosstown rivals this season, United have managed to prize away a future first team regular from City.

Manchester City head into the final fixture of Premier League season with nothing to play for. They have Champions League qualification secured and have their sights set on Real Madrid.

The same cannot be said about Manchester United, who have to secure a point or win for Champions League next campaign. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs his players to deliver against Leicester City on Sunday.

Solskjaer would be pleased with how his team has responded. They have beaten Chelsea twice and done the double over Manchester City.

Moreover, they have managed to secure the services of Charlie McNeil from the Citizens. McNeil had managed over 600 goals for City’s youth teams in six years. He will now be plying his trade for their arch rivals, Manchester United.

In his farewell to the club, McNeil thanked the club for their efforts and wished them well.

“Thank you very much to Manchester City for everything they’ve done for me during the last six years,” McNeil posted on Instagram.

“It has been a pleasure to play with some incredible players, I wish everyone the best.”

Guardiola had earmarked the young forward as a future first team regular. However, the Catalan manager will be resigned to see him play for the Red Devils.
