One of the brightest talents in Scotish football Matthew Knox is closing in on a move to Man United despite links with Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, and Rangers.
According to a report from The Daily Record Knox will have a second trial with the Reds Devils after he impressed the coaching staff at Carrington earlier in the year.
The talented midfielder is keen to make a switch to Manchester this week and eagerly waiting for his second trial, that will help him to earn a contract with the Red Devils.
Scottish giants Rangers have also expressed interest in signing Knox after he was invited to train with the club. The 16-year-old midfielder has also been put through his paces with Merseyside Reds, Tottenham Hotspurs, Everton and Nottingham Forest, with claims he would prefer a move to Old Trafford.
Knox only made his debut for Livingston in December and became the youngster player to play for the Scottish club. Livingston received an offer for Knox in the last window from an EFL club, but this bid was rejected.
The 16-year-old midfielder is one of the brightest Scottish players and for his career, it would be better to join Man United Youth team.
Mourinho has sanctioned loan moves for James Wilson to Derby, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson to Wolves and a permanent move for Tyler Blackett – who signed a three-year deal with Reading.
It follows the joint sale of Paddy McNair and Donald Love to Sunderland, Adnan Januzaj’s loan to the same club and Guillermo Varela’s loan to Eintracht Frankfurt.
Andreas Periera and Will Keane are also likely to go out on loan before the transfer window closes with Mourinho working on trimming around 10 players from his huge squad.
