Harvey joined the Spanish club in 2015 after his dad took up the chance to become their assistant coach. Phil departed from Valencia when brother Gary was given the axe as the manager a year later, but Harvey stayed put after being offered a new contract, and he is now being heralded as one of their most exciting young talents.

The son of the younger of the Neville brothers to have played for Manchester United has prospered in Spain and his ability on set pieces has drawn comparisons with United legend Beckham. Neville was on United's books before spending a brief period with rivals Manchester City in his younger days, where he won the Premier League International Tournament, as reported by the Metro.

Spanish outlet Super Deporte claim the Red Devils are keen on bringing him back to Old Trafford after making an enquiry over the summer, with Tottenham also said to be interested.

United have been on a recruitment drive since Nicky Butt was appointed as Academy Director 18 months ago and they've signed youngsters from all over the world. Spurs are also thought to be interested in signing Neville but his family's history with United would surely give the Red Devils the advantage.

And the winger's technical prowess is catching plenty of eyes – even from the man, he is being compared to.

Former England captain Beckham was so impressed by Harvey's abilities that he commented on a video posted by good friend Phil on Instagram, according to the Sun.

Beckham commented: "Great cross Philip, you been showing Harvey videos of me??"

To which Neville replied: "Yes mate, morning noon and night haha."
