Di’Shon Bernard could be on his way out of Manchester United
According to The Telegraph’s Mike McGrath, Manchester United academy ace Di’Shon Bernard is attracting interest from Championship clubs Coventry City and Huddersfield Town.
The 19-year-old switched to the Manchester United youth setup from Chelsea in 2017. He has made 27 appearances for our U18s and 20 appearances for the U23s across all competitions. (h/t Transfermarkt)
Bernard made his senior debut in the 2019/20 campaign, starting in the Europa League contest against Astana. Unfortunately, the young centre-back ended up scoring an own goal in the game as we lost 2-1.
His senior debut might not have gone according to plans. But the club hold him in high regard. However, his contract is expiring in less than a year.
The defender’s situation led to interest from Coventry City, who won promotion to the Championship after winning the 2019/20 League One title. Huddersfield Town, who finished 18th in the second division last term, are also keen.
Given the number of defenders ahead of him in the pecking order at the first-team level, Bernard is unlikely to get any chances in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

At the same time, given his potential, selling him outright might not be the most prudent move by the club. Thus, extending his contract and then loaning him out for first-team exposure would be the right thing to do.
