Manchester United fans have been reacting to the news that Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell will not be pursued by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the club are not looking to bring in a left-back at this time.

However, with the emergence of Carrington youngster Brandon Williams, those searches for a left-back have now been called off and the club will settle with what they have, per The Times.
Supporters agreed with the stance of the club and looked towards Williams to become a regular in the first team, making their feelings clear on youngster on social media.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Manchester United fans:
Williams is everything that we need. His vision and accuracy is perfect. Hopefully Woodward ties him with huge contract

We’ve got Williams. We’re fine. CDM should be the main priority

Shaw, Dalot, Laird can all back up Williams at LB. Quality was our problem. Not depth

Brandon, shaw n young are just fine!

Now why would we want to sign a left back when Williams is available.
