Breaking news: Erik ten Hag’s brutal decision opens Manchester United first team door to Alvaro Fernandez ,the left back will replace Shaw and Telles after being named under 23 player of the year
Manchester United youngster Alva’ro Fernandez has been tipped to have a bright fu’ture ahead of him, and could get his chance in the fi’rst team next season under Erik ten Hag.
The Dutchman’s pref’erence for youth in his Ajax teams has been well-documen’ted, but he has shown his ruthlessness too. Along with Aar’on Wan-Bissaka, the club have effectively deci’de’d to put Brandon Williams up for sale.
United are willing to list’en to offers for the left-back after a stale loan spe’ll at Norwich. Ten Hag has been meeting with Richard Ar’nold and John Murtough in London this week ahead of hi’s’ trip to watch United against Crystal Palace on Sun’day.
He would at the very le’ast have been briefed about the plans regarding Wan-Biss’aka and Williams, and it seems he has not stood in the wa’y of either of their exits. The news may be of encour’agement to Fernandez.
The 19-year-old has w’on many plaudits throughout the academy campaign and w’as named as the club’s Under-23s player of the season th’is month. He’s made Ralf Rangnick’s bench for th’e last three league outings and is likely to get be nam’ed again at Selhurst Park.
Like all members of t’he squad, he will be eager to impress ten Hag over t’he summer in the hope of making it where Williams fail’ed. The England left-back was temporarily offlo’aded to the Canaries after failing to progress on from a break’through 2019/20 season.
Many had hoped to see h’im start to pull on the coattails of Luke Shaw for the fi’rst choice left-back spot by now. But while the 21-year-‘o’ld has time on his side, United feel he has not develop’ed enough to be a key cog in next season’s push for a t’op four spot.
