Manchester United are close to signing 14-year-old Ipswich Town forward Silva Mexes ahead of the summer

Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Ipswich Town teenage sensation Silva Mexes ahead of the summer transfer window, according to the Secret Scout.

The Secret Scout – a reputable source for youth football and transfer news – posted the information on social media platform X account on Friday afternoon.

Ipswich and Man United have a good working relationship, with Axel Tuanzebe joining the Championship club in September after he was released by the Old Trafford club last summer.

Red Devils academy graduate Brandon Williams is also on a season-long loan, and Man United could soon be signing one of their most talented youngsters.

Mexes has impressed their scouts and will link up with their academy if a move works out.

United boast one of the best academies in the world, and the Ipswich youngster may be tempted to secure a deal and hopefully establish himself as a Premier League star.

Given the vast gulf between youth and senior football, the English top flight is not for every talented young player, but Mexes has the potential to make the breakthrough.

Their inability to sign European players under 18 years due to post-Brexit rules has seen the Red Devils and other English clubs focus on the home market.

The Championship has plenty of hidden gems such as Mexes who will continue to attract the big boys.
