Manchester United are reportedly ready to make their move for former Spurs youngster, Marcus Edwards after an impressive season with Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes.

According to the O Jogo, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are looking to add Edwards to their squad amid interest from across Europe.

Edwards left Spurs last summer on a free transfer and has caught the at his new club having failed to make a breakthrough for the Tottenham under Mauricio Pochettino

Less than a year later, it is reported Manchester United are “ready to make an offer” for the 21-year-old.

Spurs are likely to make money from the next move which Edwards makes in his career with the North Londoners having inserted a 50 per cent sell-on fee in the deal they agreed with the Liga Nos outfit (Football.London).

In Edwards’ 26 appearances this season in the Portuguese top flight, he has scored on seven occasions and provided nine assists (Transfermarkt).

According to the Daily Star, any deal for Edwards is expected to be in the region of £13million-£18million which would see Spurs bag at least £6.5million.

There is a real sense of missed opportunity with Edwards. Is he the one who got away? He certainly has the potential to be an exceptional player, however, it just never seemed to work for whatever reason whilst he was at Spurs.
