Tottenham are in the hunt to sign Valencia teenager and Phil Neville’s son Harvey Neville, according to a report.
Spanish news outlet Super Deporte claims that Manchester United are also keeping track of Neville, 14, who is still at Valencia after his father held the assistant manager role between 2015 and 2016.
It is understood that Spurs have contacted the La Liga side about a potential move for the teenage sensation, who has been compared to Man United legend David Beckham for his ability to cross the ball and has even adopted his famous No 7 shirt.
Neville is the son of former Man United and Everton defender Phil Neville, who won six Premier League titles during his time at Old Trafford.
The ex-England international has dipped his toes into coaching since retiring and it seems his son Harvey has been following his tracks.
The Valencia teenager has previously had spells at Man United and their bitter rivals Manchester City before he moved to Spain.
Football Insider Verdict
Spurs have a great academy system and that could be what attracts Neville back to England. He has had his chance at Man United and may want to try another club back in his home nation to try and continue his footballing education. The fact that the 14-year-old is being compared to Beckham is perhaps a bit too over the top and with his father being Phil Neville, the youngster has a lot of pressure on his shoulders at such a tender age. If Spurs do manage to sign Harvey Neville up, it would be a big indication of how far they’ve come in recent seasons.
