Having risen through the academy of Wolfsburg, 2014 was the year when the young German Julian Brandt trod on a new path which took him to the Bay Arena, home of Bayer Leverkusen. Brandt made his debut against Schalke and since then his career has seen an unbelievable amount of elevation and development.

The young sensation has cemented his place in Roger Schmidt’s plans. In 75 appearances so far for Brandt counted from 2014, the German has scored a total of 15 goals but most importantly he’s created over 90 crucial chances. His average passing accuracy hasn’t dropped below 75% range after the completion of a season and he has already completed over 1000 passes successfully since last year.

One of the finest attributes of Brandt is the natural flow of creativity that he brings to the game and also his tremendous work-rate which sees him move all over the space behind the striker, always making clever movements, completing fine dribbles and trying to provide that final pass which would see a goal being scored.

When a young gun performs so impressively on a consistent level, big sharks in this giant ocean of football are quick to appear. England’s giants have scouting networks across the globe and these impressive performances of Brandt have surely caught the eye.

Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United and Arsene’s Arsenal are among the clubs being currently linked to the prodigy. The question as always is, which club would be a better destination for Brandt?

Why Manchester United Is Not The Right Answer

Jose Mourinho’s building project at Manchester United has started on a massive scale with lavish amounts of money being spent all around to strengthen the team and Jose has already done that before this season during the summer, addition 4 quality players to 4 different positions.

The attack seems to have settled well over time and even the rising talents like that of Martial and Rashford have found no place in the starting line-up because United’s front four – Zlatan, Mkhitaryan, Mata/Lingard, Pogba have etched their mark on the first team sheet and look indispensable considering their form.

So obviously this destination is certainly not good for a developing player who deserves first team action.
