Manchester United are eyeing a deal for Reading goalkeeper, Coniah Boyce-Clarke, ahead of the January transfer window, according to Sky Sports News.
The young shot-stopper has made a huge amount of progress with Reading since he progressed through the academy in Berkshire, so it’s no surprise to see Manchester United interested in signing him.
Boyce-Clarke is still only 15-years-old but has made remarkable progress this year, and has made appearances for both the under-18s and under-23s despite his youth.
So he certainly has a huge amount of potential. And, he would have made a good impression against the Red Devils in Reading’s 1-0 defeat to the Manchester United under-23s side this week.
Boyce-Clarke made a stunning save to keep the score down on the night and his impressive performance evidently hasn’t gone unnoticed.
He is also capped at youth level for England.
It remains to be seen as to whether Man United will make a formal approach for the goalkeeper.
Reading must hold on to him.
Even though it will be a difficult task, Boyce-Clarke is the most exciting youngster to come through the academy in recent years and he can play a starring role in the future of the Royals.
Reading will be keen to tie him down to a long-term contract in the near future, otherwise they could live to regret letting the shot-stopper leave for a cheap price at such a young age.
