Despite previous reports, Manchester United have not agreed a deal to sign Crewe Alexander’s Nick Powell but it appears they are at the front of the queue for the teenager’s signature.

At the end of May the Daily Mail stated that United had agreed a deal with Crewe for the midfielder, but no news was forthcoming from either party in regards to a move.

Talk of interest from Chelsea as well as Arsenal further confirmed that no deal had been reached, but today various sources are claiming that Manchester United are at the head of the pack for the 18 year old.

Crewe manager Steve Davis confirmed that he expects the starlet to leave this summer, but as of now no move has been made for him:

“Nick is still with us, but I am sure talks are still ongoing with his agent and clubs.

“I still envisage him leaving us this summer, but if it doesn’t happen then we would welcome him back for pre-season. We’ll see what happens this week because obviously I would like to know as soon as possible if we are moving forward without him or not.”
