Manchester United and Erik ten Hag are currently working together trying to find new players available in the transfer market in order to bring in quality signings that will help the team turn this shocking situation around. However, they haven’t forgotten about getting rid of the deadwood in the dressing room and want to let players out as well.

Some of the names that do not count for the new manager this season and could be on their way out soon are Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe, James Garner, and Brandon Williams. Nevertheless, this last one could end up staying at the club for this season even though he wouldn’t play as much time as he would like.

Just like Facundo Pellistri, Williams was loan-listed by the club, but they both suffered injuries that have ruled them out for a couple of months, which made the multiple teams interested in them back off and look for other options. In Williams' case, he missed all of pre-season under ten Hag but he is just about to come back to training.

The 21-year-old could actually be a solution for the former Ajax coach as he is struggling to find solutions at the full-back position. Although Brandon normally plays as a left-back, he is able to do it on the right-hand side of the defense since he is right-footed. Ten Hag doesn’t count with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, so the academy player could compete against Diogo Dalot to be the starter.

Brandon’s short career

Williams made his Manchester United senior debut back in the 2019-2020 season under Ole Gunnar Solskjær, who gave a lot of opportunities to youngsters. He had an impressive start, but he slowly lost his place in the team as Luke Shaw was untouchable. Last summer he joined Norwich City on loan where he played 23 Premier League games.
