Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Marcus Edwards has shown exactly what he’s capable of since moving abroad.
For whatever reason, Edwards couldn’t force his way into the first team in north London, and he decided to move to Portugal instead.
However, he is well on his way to becoming the one that got away from Spurs in recent years.
Although Edwards is arguably one of the most gifted dribblers to emerge from the academy – averaging more than three dribbles per game in Liga NOS last season – he never got a chance to prove himself.
The Lilywhites have been linked with their former charge this summer, but it appears he is paying no attention to the past and is fully focused on the future.
It’s hardly surprising he has attracted attention from his former club and Manchester United, as his contract clause is reportedly worth €15m (£13.5m). However, Jose Mourinho is hardly short of wide options, including wingers Son Heung-min, Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn, and it wouldn’t make much sense to splash the cash on a player Daniel Levy let go for free.
Tottenham fans, should Levy sign Marcus Edwards in the summer? Let us know in the comments below!
