Manchester United starlet Dylan Levitt on Dundee United and Cardiff radar - report

Scottish Premiership club Dundee United and Championship Cardiff City are keen on signing Manchester United midfielder Dylan Levitt, according to The Sun.

The 21-year-old spent the 2021-22 campaign on loan at Tannadice and they were hoping that the Red Devils would not extend his contract further so they could sign him on a free.

But United triggered an extension to his deal which has sparked Dundee United to ready an offer of £300,000 to try and sign the Welsh international permanently.

Cardiff City are also looking very keenly at Levitt having already made a wave of signings this summer as they look to build a squad capable of challenging at the sharp end in the English second division.

He has recovered from a disappointing loan spell at Charlton during the 2020-21 season to star at Tannadice which helped him keep his place in the Wales squad as they qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Let him go

Manchester United have big ambitions to succeed right now as does Erik Ten Hag, which is why he was hired as their new manager once Ralf Rangnick left his interim post.

If they really want to go and make a claim for trophies from the get-go, then they can’t really afford to be playing someone like Levitt who is yet to really make that breakthrough that suggests he could keep up in the Premier League.

Ten Hag should be questioning whether Scott McTominay and Fred are really good enough to play for Manchester Inited every single week and if he is unsure on that answer, then he shouldn’t need much time to come to a conclusion on Levitt.

Especially with Hannibal Mejbri breaking into the side towards the end of Rangnick’s temporary tenure, and making quite the splash with his exuberance, then there is just no room for the Welsh 21-year-old and he would be smart to leave if the right offer comes in for him.

In other Manchester United news, a 16-year-old goalkeeper from Stevenage has become Ten Hag’s first signing.
