Manchester United’s academy is producing some very outstanding players right now. Anthony Elanga, James Garner, Shola Shoretire, and others are all on the outskirts of the first team.
Ethan Laird is one of my personal favorites and biggest aspirations for the future. Last season, when on loan at MK Dons, the young full-back appeared a cut above the rest.
He’s spent the preseason dealing with an ailment he sustained at the close of last season. However, he appears to have recovered from the worst of it and is now prepared to go on another loan transfer.
Laird will join Swansea City in the Championship, where he will reunite with boss Russell Martin.
The news comes from the Swansea Independent, which reported on Sunday that a Laird medical was completed.
After seeing Swansea’s game yesterday, the talented 20-year-old is getting closer to a loan transfer away from Manchester United.
The Swansea Independent has additional information on Laird, emphasizing how much devil is in the details for United. From diet to loan fees to wage expectations, the Reds are making it clear that this is unquestionably the ideal location for their young prodigy to spend the next nine months.
Although it may appear to outsiders to be a little drawn out, it’s fantastic to see United doing everything they can to preserve their treasure. Laird has enormous potential, and it is critical that the next move in his career is the right one.
Fair play to the powers-that-be, the young coaches, and, of course, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for checking all the boxes before approving this move.
Hopefully, everything will be settled shortly and Laird will be able to concentrate entirely on football.
