Manchester United set to loan out Dylan Levitt for 2020/21
According to Wales Online, Manchester United are ready to send young midfielder Dylan Levitt out on loan for the 2020/21 season. This has put several EFL Championship clubs on alert as they eye a move for the youngster.
The 19-year-old Levitt is a product of the club’s youth academy. A central midfielder by trade, he made his first-team debut for United earlier this season in a Europa League game against Astana.
Apart from that, Levitt has featured 23 times for the club’s U23 side, scoring three goals and setting up five.
A talented and young midfielder, Levitt was left out of United’s squad for the remainder of the Europa League. This didn’t go down too well with the Welshman, who took to social media to express his displeasure, before deleting the post.
Given that we already have a packed midfield department, chances of Levitt getting meaningful game time in the upcoming campaign are very slim.
Indeed, Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay and Fred have all been in top form of late, while Bruno Fernandes can also occupy a deeper midfield role if need be.
So Levitt would certainly stand to benefit from going out on loan for a year. And as per the report, a number of clubs from the English second division are lining up to snap up the 19-year-old.

Levitt is not the only youngster who could leave on loan this summer. James Garner, Ethan Laird and Matej Kovar are all likely to be sent away on temporary spells, while Tahith Chong is also likely to leave on loan.
We need to only look at Dean Henderson to know what effect a successful loan spell can have on a youngster’s career. Hopefully, Levitt, should he leave, makes the most of his time away and comes back as a better player.
