Man Utd in transfer raid on Gary Neville's Salford as they take winger Kelly N'Mai, 19, on trial | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED have raided Gary Neville's Salford for a young starlet.

The Red Devils took Dutch winger Kelly N'Mai on trial last week.

And the 19-year-old, who has appeared 11 times for the League Two outfit, was given a run out for Utd U21's last Friday in a 2-2 draw against Leicester City.

Teenager N'Mai previously had a trial with Manchester City before he was snapped up by the Ammies in 2020.

The Netherlands-born wideman committed his future to Salford by signing a new deal with the club in 2021.

However, Salford won't stand in his way if United decide to add him to their development squad.

Erik ten Hag's side would have to pay a compensation fee to sign him, should they wish to make the move permanent.

Meanwhile, Neville led the celebrations after Salford scraped into the League Two play-offs.

But they were made to sweat after they were beaten 1-0 at home by Gillingham this afternoon.

Goal difference proved to be the decisive factor – with both Salford and Mansfield Town finishing their campaign on 75 points.

The Stags managed a 2-0 win away at Colchester – which put their goal difference up to +17.

Astonishingly, Salford – who are joined by Stockport, Carlisle and Bradford in the play-offs – ended their campaign with a +18 goal difference.


However, if Salford had conceded another and the goal differences were level, it would have been Mansfield who made the play-offs instead on goals scored.

Neville revealed his relief at the final whistle on Twitter.

He wrote: ""I did not enjoy that @SalfordCityFC! 😧! Well done lads over the season and to all the other teams! 👍🏻🙏"
