Manchester United are reportedly ready to cash in on their academy graduate James Garner in the summer transfer window as per the report in the English outlet Daily Mail.
The 21-year-old is enjoying a productive loan spell with Nottingham Forest this term, scoring three goals and assisting four times in 31 appearances in the Championship.
Following a promising display at the City Ground, the youngster has caught the attention of Premier League clubs and Leeds United are among the interested parties who want to secure a deal for the Englishman.
As per the report, despite the rivalry between the two clubs, Manchester United could sell their youngster to their adversaries, given the 21-year-old is keen on playing regular first-team football next season.
Selling James Garner permanently might not be a shrewd decision by Manchester United. The 21-year-old is having a stellar campaign this term in the Championship, therefore, testing out his traits in the Premier League will be the right decision for the youngster’s development next season.
So, loaning out the academy graduate will be an apt decision by the club’s hierarchy. Meanwhile, despite showcasing a productive performance in the Championship, playing consistently for United will be a daunting challenge for the Englishman.
The youngster needs more time to develop his career and gain more experience. On the other hand, Manchester United are currently looking for a new manager and the new boss should decide whether the 21-year-old should be involved in the first-team squad or not.
Erik Ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino are reportedly the frontrunners in the race to become the next Manchester United manager. And it will be interesting to see who will end up at Old Trafford next season.
