Manchester United are eyeing up an enticing prospect.

The rumours are persistent. They pervade every avenue and media platform. They are perpetually lingering in the minds of Manchester United supporters. There has been a mythical calendar set-up to count down the days of Jadon Sancho‘s arrival.

Of course in the current financial climate, such hopes would have dwindled. The Red Devils supporters may not get their wish and might have to make do with Solskjaer bringing in a cheaper alternative instead of Sancho.

One of those players could be Marcus Edwards.

More from Red Devil Armada

The England international is currently in Portugal and plies his trade for Vitoria de Guimaraes in the Portuguese first division.

He made the bold move to sign for the club after not being given the opportunity to showcase his talent in Tottenham’s first team. His situation was eerily similar to that of Sancho when he moved from Manchester City to Borussia Dortmund.

And the results have been eerily similar too.

Marcus Edwards has blossomed playing abroad and has really caught the eye for Vitoria this season. He is small and diminutive but is extremely quick and agile. His technical ability stands head and shoulders from the rest and he was dubbed as the ‘English Messi’ during his early years due to his low-centre of gravity and ability to slalom past defences with ease.

And now according to Portugal outlet Record via United in Focus, the Red Devils are considering making a move for the exciting talent.

At 21 years of age, Marcus Edwards has an incredibly bright future and he could blossom at Old Trafford.

Capable of playing on the wings and as a number ten he could provide Solskjaer with a multitude of options.

Edwards was never given a proper chance at Tottenham despite his evident talent. He has now demonstrated he can do it at a high level and is ready for the step back into the Premier League.

Earlier this season, Marcus Edwards was extremely impressive against Arsenal in the Europa League for example putting in a man of the match performance against the Gunners netting in a narrow 3-2 loss at the Emirates.

All together he has 7 goals and 7 assists in 30 games this season.

Next. Man United are set to lose one of their main targets. dark

Would Marcus Edwards be a good signing?
