Leeds United likely to retain services of Tyler Adams amid Manchester United interest
Manchester United appear to have reportedly lost their chance to sign Tyler Adams after his move to Leeds United this summer.
According to former Eurosport journalist Dean Jones, the American has been on their radar in the past but they’re not likely to sign him now.
This will come as a major relief for Jesse Marsch who pushed to get this deal over the line in the summer, having previously worked with Adams at RB Leipzig.
Jones told GiveMeSport, “I just can’t see it happening. I mean, United have had him on their radar before, but I think the moment’s gone.”
Whether or not Marsch is there at the club beyond January is still up in the air, but it is important that Adams remains at the club.
Leeds have had an issue with the lack of quality midfielders throughout the Marcelo Bielsa era and bar Kalvin Philipps and Mateusz Klich, few have been consistent to start every game.
However, with the signing of Adams and Marc Roca, they now look assured in the middle of the park and it’s important that they retain these players, regardless of who the manager is.
The American has adapted very well to life in the Premier League and hopefully, Leeds give him the sort of assurances he wants so that he does not look for a move in the coming months.
Staying up and avoiding a relegation battle are surely important factors in his decision and a repeat of last season, could see many players seriously considering their future and it’s important that the club start to get things right on the pitch.
