Trossard was on fire in Belgium’s last game against Poland, scoring a wonderful goal.
He has established himself as one of Brighton’s key players and forms the attacking crux of Graham Potter’s side.
The 27 year old starts either on the left or centrally behind the strike pair of Danny Welback and Neal Maupay.
In Potter’s 3-4-3 system, he has the creative freedom to express himself in the final third.
When allowed time and space with the ball, he can prove to be extremely dangerous.
For Man United, he could be deployed as a 10, or on either flank.
With Jadon Sancho’s best performances coming on the left wing, Trossard could well be a direct replacement for Bruno Fernandes.
As crazy as it may sound, Ten Hag could much rather prefer an attacking midfielder of the mould of Trossard, who is technically superior to Bruno.
He might not have the X-factor that the Portuguese is blessed with, but in a well-drilled team could provide the necessary balance.
Trossard is said to be wanting to take the next step in his footballing journey, and a move to Old Trafford could be ideal.
