According to a recent report from the Express, Manchester United are in the race to sign Norwich City’s midfielder Todd Cantwell. According to this report, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are also interested in the services of the midfielder.
The 22-year-old has scored some crucial goals for the Canaries, who are struggling to stay up in the English top flight. Cantwell has made 30 appearances in all competitions this season and has scored six goals and created two assists. The midfielder has also represented England at the u-21 level.
Cantwell is a versatile midfielder as he can play from the left, right or through the middle in an attacking role. Daniel Farke has predominantly used him as a left midfielder.
The likes of Jesse Lingard, Andreas Pereira and Juan Mata have failed to live up to expectations for Manchester United. They haven’t contributed much in the attacking front, and it is understandable why Ole Gunnar Solskjær might be on the lookout for an attack-minded midfielder. Given Cantwell’s versatility, he can do multiple jobs in midfield.
What can Cantwell offer?
The English midfielder is known for his ability to carry the ball forward, and he can link up play well. Cantwell also puts in a significant shift for his side on the defensive front. There is no doubt that he would need to improve a bit in terms of physicality to really dominate the midfield battle. Nevertheless, he makes up for it with his intelligent movement in and around the attacking third.
The Dereham born midfielder showcases impressive finishing skills as well as he has scored some calmly taken goals for the Canaries. Hence, in a more attacking team, one can expect Cantwell to score ten-odd goals from midfield in a season.
Should Manchester United go for him?
Cantwell is not yet a finished product, and he would need some more time to play for a club of United’s calibre. If Manchester United want to emerge as title challengers for the next season, then they should look to be more ambitious. Cantwell isn’t a bad player, but he still needs to do a lot to earn a place for a club that would challenge for the top honours. Maybe United can use him as a backup option initially, and with more experience, he can develop into a top player in the future. For now, Cantwell might not be ready to carry the weight of Manchester United’s jersey.
