Manchester United fans praise Dylan Levitt assist as superb rise continues

It’s safe to say Manchester United fans were thoroughly impressed with academy star Dylan Levitt’s superb assist in an U23 match vs Sunderland.

Supporters have always enjoyed young players coming through to the first-team and it seems many have tipped the sensational youngster to be the next prodigy.

It’s not the first time calls for Levitt to be involved in the first-team have come up as many who watch the academy fixtures regularly have recognised his potential.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has so far opted for the likes of Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong, Mason Greenwood and Jimmy Garner but it’s likely fans will see plenty more before the season is over.

United’s squad is a relatively thin one, particularly in midfield and attack so it makes sense to beef it up with promising youngsters.

The Red Devils have Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba all out injured so if there was ever a time to promote an upcoming midfielder, it’s now.

However, it seems Garner is ahead in the pecking order than Levitt so if any academy product gets a chance it’s likely the former.

Given the need to keep up momentum though, it’s likely Solskjaer will play a regular first-team star instead out of their position to shore up the midfield.
