The 2019/20 season will always be remembered – whatever happens from here on out. COVID-19 has played its part, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to build this Manchester United squad into one that can compete at the highest level.
Developing youth has been the base on which the Baby Faced Assassin has been built upon. Scott McTominay, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams have all played major roles.
Now, according to The Athletic, the latter, talented-19-year-old Williams, is set to be offered a ‘major new contract’. Apparently, talks are planned to place a significantly improved deal on the table for the teenage left-back, who currently earns £4,000-a-week.
After an impressive Carabao Cup debut against Rochdale in last September, Williams hasn’t looked back and has gone on to challenge Luke Shaw for that starting berth. Right now, the pair are going toe-to-toe from game-to-game, pushing each other to that next level.
Williams has already emerged as a fan favourite. He loves this club just like we do and that really means an awful lot to us supporters.
For us, Williams’ dream is one that’s fairly new in our mind. However, not his. According to The Athletic, he rejected loan offers last summer in order to fight for a first-team place at United. Furthermore, he told long-term friends of his ‘desire’ to make it at Old Trafford. Well, he’s certainly making good on those promises already!
This is great news for everyone, but most importantly, the Williams family who dearly deserve it. Hopefully, the deal is signed in the not too distant future and his long-term plans remain at the Theatre of Dreams.
