Should a deal be finalised, it looks as if Edwards would arrive ahead of Erik ten Hag’s second season in charge and could be involved in a pivotal summer off the pitch.

Everyone at the club will be hoping Ten Hag can kick on after a solid start, and Edwards’ help in the transfer market could be key to United returning to the top where they will hope to be challenging for the Premier League title.
