Juventus made a huge offer for this Manchester United star.

In 2012, a Manchester United youth product stood restlessly on the sidelines. He knew he was ready. He was eager to get his long awaited time on the pitch. But the Red Devils’ boss disagreed. Sir Alex Ferguson told him to bide his time and wait for his opportunity.

That youngster was Paul Pogba and he did not heed the patient words of his master. Instead he pounced on an alluring opportunity to join Italian giants Juventus.

A few years later, Pogba would end up rejoining the club and making his home Old Trafford once more.

Perhaps, that experience played in the mind of young Brandon Williams when Juventus made a ‘life changing’ offer to the full-back according to The Athletic via The Peoples’ Person. Unlike his predecessor, Brandon Williams did not fall for the enticing offer to play for the Italian giants however and instead opted to remain at Old Trafford.

It is a move which has paid dividends for Brandon Williams. The full-back has waited patiently and is now reaping the rewards having established himself as a regular member of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s match-day squad.

A quick and pacy defender, Brandon Williams can bring the ball forward with astute precision. He is a tough tackler and a fighter too and having honed his skills in the club’s academy he is a United player through and through. Brandon Williams understands the essence and core values of the club and perhaps that’s why he has been able to relate to the fans so well.

Already compared to club legends, Brandon Williams is still just 19 years of age and he has the world at his feet.

The fans love to see players of his ilk come through from the academy and make it in the first team. The new revelation that Williams rejected Juventus at such a young age in favour of staying at United will be a another sign that he is one of the Red Devils’ very own.

The Red Devils have contacted an old Mourinho favourite. dark. Next
