According to Tuttomercato, Serie A team Fiorentina is interested in acquiring Manchester United’s Brandon Williams on loan for the upcoming season.
Williams had a successful loan spell at Norwich City but struggled to secure a spot in United’s first team due to a long-term injury, limiting his playing time to just five minutes.
As a result, United is open to letting the 22-year-old full-back leave, and Fiorentina is considering a loan deal with an option to make it permanent next summer for €5 million.
Despite returning from a decent loan stint at Norwich City, Williams had hoped for more playing time under manager Erik Ten Hag, but that hasn’t materialized.
The article suggests that Ten Hag has not made any definitive statements about Williams’ future at United, leaving room for speculation.
However, considering the circumstances, it appears more likely that United will sell rather than retain Williams. The club is expected to offload several players in the summer transfer window, and it would be surprising if Williams were to stay.
Ultimately, it seems mutually beneficial for both parties to part ways. The Red Devils are looking for new signings at full-back positions with Inter Milan star Denzel Dumfries and Bayer Leverkusen star Jeremie Frimpong being closely linked to the club.
