Manchester United to make an offer for Marcus Edwards
Edwards came through the youth ranks at Tottenham Hotspur. Not long ago, former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino compared the youngster to Barcelona captain and legend Lionel Messi. (h/t Daily Star)
“The qualities – it’s only looks, his body and the way that he plays – remember a little bit from the beginning of Messi.”
However, Edwards couldn’t make the grade at Tottenham. The versatile attacker left the Londoners last summer to join Portuguese club Vitoria Guimaraes, and he has thrived there.
Till date, the 21-year-old Edwards has bagged nine goals and nine assists in 37 matches across all competitions. This has led to interest from Manchester United, while Tottenham themselves are considering re-signing him. (h/t Daily Star)
However, reports in the Portuguese media (h/t Daily Star) are claiming that the Red Devils are interested in Marcus Edwards as well. In fact, they go on to claim that the club is ready to make an offer for the 21-year-old winger.
