Leeds United are reportedly interested in Manchester United left-back Brandon Williams.

Daniel Farke is hoping to lead the Yorkshire outfit back to the Premier League following relegation last season and believes Williams could be a good signing.

According to a report from The Independent, United would be looking for a permanent exit if there are to be multiple outgoings, which is expected this summer.

Leeds believe he would join

It is thought that Leeds are confident they can pull off the deal to sign the Englishman as they believe they play progressive football which would fit Williams’ style of play.

The full-back has spent previous seasons on loan at Norwich City, in which he struggled, ironically, under Daniel Farke, the current Leeds manager.

The United full-back has looked promising during pre-season and was hoping to impress current boss Erik ten Hag, but it now seems the Championship side will offer him a way out of Manchester if he wishes to do so.

He was given his chance in the United first team under former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and for a time, the defender displaced Luke Shaw as left-back for United but struggled to keep his place as Shaw returned back to his best in the 2020/2021 season.

£50 million needed for Amrabat

According to the same report from the Independent, United need to generate around £50 million from sales this summer in order to sign Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.

It doesn’t state if the £50 million is what the Italian side values him at or what United need to generate to be in a good spot in terms of financial fair play.

What seems clear, however, is that the United academy graduate Williams is seemingly not in United’s or Erik ten Hag’s plans for the new season.

United hope to generate a good fee for the defender, but it is unclear if the Englishman would join one of United’s biggest rivals.
