Manchester United have made some tremendous progress this season as they currently sit at second in the Premier League table and are favourites to reach the final of the Europa League after coming out with a 6-2 victory over AS Roma in the first leg of their semi-final tie.
This improvement has coincided with a number of players stepping up their game this season. Paul Pogba is playing some of his best football in a Manchester United shirt while Luke Shaw is in the form of his life. Harry Maguire has also established himself as the leader of this team while many others are putting in consistent performances as well.
Amidst all this, one man who has not received too many chances this season is Brandon Williams. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he made 36 appearances in the previous campaign but has only managed 11 appearances this time around.
Naturally, it would not be surprising to see him leave on loan in the near future in search of regular football. As reported by The Sun, Norwich City, who will return to the Premier League next season, have joined the race for the defender while Southampton and West Ham United are also believed to be interested.

A spell away from Manchester United could help Williams develop
While Williams did make 36 appearances in the 2019/2020 season, it is hard to see him get too many opportunities in the first-team in the near future.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the regular starter at right-back for the club while Luke Shaw does the same on the opposite flank. Behind Shaw, there is Alex Telles in the pecking order. As a result, is feels unlikely that Williams is set to get a lot of chances anytime soon despite being capable of playing at both full-back positions.
A spell away from Old Trafford on loan could help his development a lot though. Williams is still just 20 years of age and at this point of time, it is important for him to be playing regular football.
