Ryan Giggs has long been touted as a future Manchester United manager and eventually that day will surely come.
One player who could get a headstart on playing under Giggs beforehand is exciting youngster Dylan Levitt.
Levitt, 17, is part of United’s academy and is making a very strong impression this season.
The central midfielder has three assists in eight under-18 games this season. Earlier this week he scored in the under-19’s victory over Juventus. Perhaps importantly, he is Welsh.
Levitt has been involved in the Wales under-19 set up already. If he continues his impressive progress then Welsh boss Ryan Giggs will bring him into the first team.
Under-19s boss Nicky Butt has great faith in the teenager. He will certainly make sure Ryan Giggs is well aware of the central midfielder’s progress.
Giggs has shown great faith in youth so far as Wales manager. Levitt is a potential star of the future and an asset he can utilise.
Described by United’s website as a ‘creative schemer’, The Star reported chatter from fans earlier this year comparing Levitt to Paul Scholes.
Levitt has plenty of work to do, but there is a huge opportunity ahead for him.
There is a fantastic pathway to success. It starts with impressing for the under-18s some more, stepping up to the under-23s, the first team, and potentially getting a Wales call.
The rate he is going, a Wales call could come even before he is an established first team player.
With Giggs expected to be future United manager, Levitt could be in his good graces and a favourite of the Wales boss before he one day fulfils his destiny at Old Trafford.
