Manchester United are reportedly in negotiations over a summer deal for Lyon teenager Florent Da Silva.

The 16-year-old, who made two appearances in the UEFA Youth League during the 2018-19 campaign, will see his current deal with Lyon expire in little under 12 months.

According to L'Equipe, United are in 'very advanced' negotiations over a move for the midfielder, although the Red Devils are yet to settle on a fee with the French outfit.

The report adds that the Under-16 France international is yet to decide where to play his football next season, though, with a number of European clubs also said to be in the hunt.

Da Silva turned out for Lyon's reserve team in the French fourth division last season and has not yet trained with the first team despite reportedly being viewed as one of the club's best young talents.

United have already completed deals for Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in this summer's transfer window.

The 20-time English champions will fly from Australia to Singapore on Thursday ahead of their third pre-season match against Italian giants Inter Milan this weekend.
