After signing the likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire and Daniel James last summer, it’s not surprising to hear new reports that Manchester United is still trying to hit young British players in this upcoming transfer window.
According to the Daily Mirror, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team has set aside a potential £ 20m move for Swansea defender Joe Rodon, with club legend and current Wales chief Ryan Giggs playing an important role in recommending him. to the club.
The best deals in the history of the Premier League – How much did they cost?
World class score: 95% | Expert score: 80% | Veteran Score: 65% | Intermediate score: 45% | Amateur score: 30% | Try again: 5%
The report says that Solskjaer wants to strengthen his defense this summer and that Giggs is a “big fan” of Rodon – the United icon also invited the club to sign Daniel James from Swansea last year.
After hearing about the links with the championship ace, United fans turned to Twitter to express their opinion on the situation.

Giggs should stop linking his country men to the club, for now we need appetizers and quality, not some middle bang league players.

A United fan simply insisted that ties to Rodon showed that the Red Devils “are becoming a second-rate club.”

While James’ form dropped significantly in the second half of the Premier League campaign, he started the season on fire, scoring three times in his first four top flight games.
Will Joe Rodon be just another Daniel James?
There seems to be reasonable value for money in young players who make a name for themselves in the league, and Rodon could be yet another starlet that does just that.
It appears that Giggs is beginning to have a real influence on the club’s transfer policy even without being in the club.
