Manchester United and Manchester City are seemingly going to war over signing each other’s youth prospects, with three players set to swap clubs.

Last month, it was reported that Tyler and Jack Fletcher, sons of current Manchester United technical director and former player Darren Fletcher, will be moving from Manchester City to the Red Devils this window.

It was said that the two players would join the club for a ‘substantial fee’, and although the move has not been completed, United are said to be confident that the duo will join the club by the end of the month.

This is according to the Manchester Evening News, which now claims that City have now enacted their act of “revenge”.

Manchester City are reportedly set to sign centre-back Harrison Parker, 16, from United after they refused to meet his demands for an increase in his salary.

Those at United are said to believe that City’s move for Parker, who is a very promising prospect at the youth level, has been done as an act of revenge for United’s potential signing of the Fletcher brothers.

The report further states that well-placed sources say Parker was offered a “competitive financial package” but the club were “unwilling” to break their current salary structure.

The fee that United expect to receive for Parker is said to be ‘significant’, and the club are happy with the progress of their other youth centre-backs in Tyler Fredricson and Louis Jackson.
