Man United are reportedly interested in signing Phil Neville’s son Harvey.

The 14-year-old currently plays for Valencia’s youth team and is being compared to Becks because of his glorious right foot.

Harvey joined the Spanish club in 2015 when his dad was assistant manager for the first team.

Phil departed when brother Gary was given the axe as manager a year later.

But Harvey stayed put after being offered a new contract, and he is now being heralded as one of their most exciting young talents in Europe.

Super Deporte claims United are keen on bringing Neville junior back to England after making an enquiry over the summer, with Spurs also interested.

Harvey was previously on the books at his dad’s old club before enjoying a spell at Man City, where he won the Premier League International Tournament.

And the winger’s technical prowess is earning him many admirers – even from the man he’s being compared to.

Former England captain Beckham was so impressed by Harvey’s abilities that he commented on a video posted by good friend Phil on Instagram.

Beckham commented: “Great cross Philip, you been showing Harvey videos of me??”

To which Neville replied: “Yes mate, morning noon and night haha.”
