Rangers are poised to raid Manchester United for the signing of teenage midfielder Charlie McCann in the very near future.

That’s according to the Daily Record, who claim that the Gers are poised to finalise a deal to bring McCann to Ibrox in an exciting move.

Steven Gerrard has allegedly been alerted to McCann’s burgeoning reputation at Old Trafford and has been keeping tabs on his progress.

Rangers are now set to strike a deal for McCann, who has less than 12 months left on his United contract following a 2018 move from Coventry City.

McCann, 19, turns out for the Republic of Ireland at youth level, meaning he will be a rare case of an Irish player joining Rangers.

McCann enjoyed a fine campaign last season, bagging five goals and three assists in 20 games for United’s Under-23 side.

Primarily a central or holding midfielder, McCann is described as ‘creative’ on United’s official website and has been tipped for a bright future.

Rangers often recruit for the future as well as for right now, and McCann should be a player who starts out in the developmental side before stepping up into Gerrard’s first team once he moves to Ibrox.
