PHIL NEVILLE’S son Harvey has signed his first professional contract with Manchester United.

The Old Trafford hero was one of the first to comment on his 18-year-old boy’s Instagram post confirming the news of a one-year deal.

Proud to have signed my first professional contract with @manchesterunited Thank you to all my family and coaches for their support👹

Neville, who plays as a defender, wrote: “Proud to have signed my first professional contract with @manchesterunited.

“Thank you to all my family and coaches for their support.”

Neville senior replied with red, white and black circles, representing United’s colours, and a heart emoji.

Chelsea and England legend John Terry also commented: “Congratulations.”

With Phil as a dad and Gary as an uncle, you would think Harvey had no choice but to play for United.

But he joined Man City as a kid and signed for Valencia’s youth team when his old man was a coach there during Gary’s time as manager.

He did start out in midfield but switched to right-back – where his dad and uncle both played.

Harvey returned to United in 2018 and has impressed at Under-18s level in the academy.

He has been involved in the Republic of Ireland youth set-up rather than England.

Neville will now hope to become a regular fixture in United’s U23s.
