Why Ipswich Town’s Dylan Crowe will be a good signing for Manchester United
Ipswich Town’s Dylan Crowe is being targetted by a number of clubs across Europe. German clubs like RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach are believed to be interested in the 17-year-old full-back but Manchester United have emerged as the favourites to land him.
At such a young age, the player will not immediately make an impact with the senior team and he might have to play a fair amount of football with the youth teams before receiving a break.
However, Crowe who has the potential to be a top player in the future and Manchester United could benefit by signing the teenager.
English talent with lots of potential
If it’s rare to find a young talent with great potential in general but it is rarer to find a talented young Englishman. More often than not, English clubs scan foreign markets to sign talented youngsters but Crowe will provide United with an option to recruit national talent.
Manchester United already have one of the best youth academies in England, but if they can add shining prospects from other clubs, they should certainly go for it.
Already an international at youth level
Since making his debut in August 2017, Crowe has been constantly called for international duty with the Under-17 setup. The right-back has made 6 appearances for the England U17 side so far and he is expected to progress further quite soon.
A move to Manchester United will only enhance his stature and improve the right-footed defender’s abilities. Furthermore, it will also provide him with greater exposure.
Possesses great quality for a teenager
Crowe is a defender who is blessed with good technique and his game is not limited to just defending. The Ipswich player is quite inventive while venturing forward on the right-wing, often taking on players and whipping in some quality crosses. Crowe also possesses a good burst of pace, allowing him to be effective on the wings.
With Valencia getting older and new signing Diego Dalot in the mix, Crowe would be a good backup for the right-back position in the future.
