Coventry City have confirmed that Manchester United have signed 15-year-old Charlie McCann for an undisclosed fee.
McCann had been at Coventry for eight years, though has grown up supporting Man United. He received an England under-16 call-up earlier in 2017.
Coventry’s academy manager, Richard Stevens, said, “When a big football club come knocking, and it is the club that Charlie supports, you must let him go and have that experience.
“We did not want to sell him, we did not need a fee for him even though there was a fee involved. He has been unbelievable for us, even making his England debut back in August.
“Charlie goes with complete support from me and the rest of the staff from the Academy.”
