L’Équipe report that Lyon’s 16-year-old creative midfield talent Florent Da Silva is being courted heavily by Manchester United.
The Red Devils are expected to imminently make a bid to Les Gones to buy Da Silva out of the final 12 months of his current youth contract with OL.
A source close to the situation had the following to say: “Negotiations are very advanced. All that is left is for the two clubs to find an agreement.”
However, the source suggested also that the player had not fully made his mind up yet: “He is thinking about which is the best project.”
Lyon’s position is not yet known. Da Silva played for the reserve team last season in the French 4th division, but was also involved in UEFA Youth League action.
