Manchester United: Fans call for Brandon Williams to come into the team after signing new contract

Manchester United defender Brandon Williams has signed a new contract at the club that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2022, with the option of a one-year extension, as reported by manutd.com.

Should United move for Rakitic?

The news of the 19-year-old’s commitment to the club was subsequently shared by United Xtra on Twitter (@utdxtra).

The teenage left-back made his first-team debut when coming on during last month’s Carabao Cup match against Rochdale, and he was soon handed a first start in the Europa League clash away to AZ Alkmaar, as well as being named in the matchday squads for the Premier League games against Arsenal and Newcastle.

His performance in the AZ Alkmaar game drew huge commendation from United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the manager saying afterwards: “He’s so brave, the courage to take the ball and go forward. Great defending, very pleased, some big, big pluses today.” [via Manchester Evening News]

Williams’ promotion to the first-team picture could see him challenging the likes of Luke Shaw and Ashley Young for the left-back slot, with the former continuing to be plagued by injuries after a hamstring problem in recent weeks and the latter now 34 years of age, although he has started the last five Premier League games.

These Manchester United fans on Twitter want to see Williams come into the team following the signing of his new contract at the club:

Do you think Williams deserves to start ahead of Shaw and Young at left-back now or should he be bedded into the team gradually? Have your say by commenting below!
