Wolves enter the race for Manchester United target Danny Loader

According to Sky Sports, Wolverhampton Wanderers have entered the race for Manchester United target Danny Loader.

The Reading youngster’s contract at the club expires next month, leaving his future open for interpretation.

The Royals were keen to extend the forward’s contract this summer. However, their plans to do so have taken a hit following the financial hit the club has taken due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Wolves agreed to terms with Loader last summer. However, the transfer did not go through as the Berkshire club pulled the plug on the move on transfer deadline day.

The 19-year-old is a promising striker who has made 35 appearances for the Reading first team. Capable of playing anywhere along the frontline, he has scored two goals and one assist during the time. (h/t Transfermarkt)

With less than five weeks to go on his contract, Loader’s stock can rise given the current financial situation. Obtaining a young promising player with decent experience for free will be an appealing option for a number of clubs.

The youngster was a part of the England Under-17 side that won the World Cup in 2017. Some of the other stars on that side include Jadon Sancho, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Phil Foden.

He made his Royals debut at the age of just 16 under former United stare Jaap Stam. He has found opportunities harder to come by under current boss Mark Bowen.

Youth revolution

The Red Devils have focussed on signing promising young players in recent windows. Having already secured Hannibal Mejbri and Dillon Hoogewerf last season, they are set to add Radek Vitek, Joe Hugill and Marc Jurado this summer.

With the likes of Mason GreenwoodBrandon Williams, and James Garner coming up through the club’s ranks, exciting times lie ahead at Old Trafford.
