Manchester United are the latest high-profile club to express interest in young Leeds United talent Archie Gray, with TEAMtalk reporting that several top clubs are also keen on the player.

Leeds United currently possess one of England’s most promising talents and are anticipating offers from some of the country’s biggest clubs. Gray is considered a future England star, attracting attention from most of the Premier League’s top six and some major European clubs.

Sources indicate that Manchester United have discussed the teenage sensation along with Manchester City, Chelsea, Spurs, and Arsenal. This interest is surprising given the intense rivalry between these clubs, but Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his new team are focused on acquiring the best young talents in the country.

Gray has established himself as a versatile player, ready to contribute wherever needed, and made 44 appearances for Leeds United last season, mostly as a full-back.

Although only 18, Gray has already made over 50 first-team appearances for Leeds, with interest in his services increasing as he reached this milestone.

Having grown up through Leeds’ ranks and being a lifelong fan, a move to Manchester United seems unlikely for Gray.

Gray has been exceptional at his boyhood club, and fans are eager for him to stay beyond this summer and help the team return to the Premier League. Sources suggest the 18-year-old is content at Elland Road but may consider a move abroad for the right opportunity.

TEAMtalk reveals that while Gray is happy playing for the club he loves and living his dream at Elland Road, he would only leave for the right opportunity, ensuring his next step is the correct one.

This poses a challenge for Manchester United, as Leeds would likely reject a bid from a rival, and Gray himself might turn down the Red Devils due to his loyalty to Leeds.

Chelsea, however, are very interested in Gray, having discussed him extensively and potentially moving for him before the transfer window closes. This will depend on their outgoing transfers and their pursuit of another midfielder, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall.
