Wolves Leading Southampton, Sheffield United,, Celtic And Brighton ‘Interested’ In Chase for Talented Young Star

Sheffield United are reportedly among the clubs interested in Manchester City starlet James McAtee.

The 20-year-old spent last season on loan at Bramall Lane, becoming a favourite among supporters due to the creativity he injected into Paul Heckingbottom’s side. He returned to Manchester City at the end of the season and has been involved in friendlies under Pep Guardiola this summer.

However, he faces stern competition for a starting berth at the Etihad Stadium with the squad stacked with talent. According to Mail Online, the Blades are interested in bringing McAtee back to South Yorkshire but are not the only club keen on him.

The report claims there is interest from Sheffield United’s Premier League counterparts Brighton & Hove Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers as well as Championship outfit Southampton and Scottish giants Celtic.


Spanish side Real Sociedad are said to be keen following the retirement of Manchester City legend David Silva, while AZ Alkmaar have also been named as an interested party. Some clubs are said to be willing to try sign McAtee permanently, whereas others are reportedly open to loan deals.

McAtee made 43 appearances for the Blades last season, scoring nine goals and registering four assists. He impressed alongside fellow Manchester City loanee Tommy Doyle, who has recently been linked with Celtic.


Sheffield United have made three permanent additions this summer, recruiting defender Auston Trusty, midfielder Anis Slimane and winger Benie Traore. They have also landed former Liverpool defender Yasser Larouci on loan.
