It has been reported that United have agreed to pay Sunderland an initial transfer fee of £250,000 for the youngster, who will receive a weekly salary of £1,200.

The report has added that Hugill’s deal at United will kick in when he turns 17 in October and becomes a full-time professional.

Good move for Joe Hugill?

Hugill is a very talented and promising young player who has reportedly got the chance of a lifetime.

United are a massive club and are a global brand, and if the teenager does well in the youth team and progresses well, then he could get the chance to turn out for the senior side.
