Even though a lot of speculations surrounded by David Brook’s future. But it seems that the harbored interest in the AFC Bournemouth midfielder has gone in vain. As it appears that David Brooks ship had sailed miles away from Manchester United.
United was linked with a move for the winger throughout the summer. Moreover, MEN Sport made claims that David Brooks was considered as a backup option to Jadon Sancho and was on the club’s radar. Sancho had been a prime target of United throughout the summer and it was the £110m transfer fee that remained the biggest stumbling block for United.
Even though, David Brooks was considered as an alternative to Jadon Sancho in the case United failed to sign him from Borussia Dortmund. But signing him in place of Sancho would have been meaningless. As the two of them differ a lot in profile.
The Wales international has been a topic of great interest for several EPL clubs after Bournemouth was relegated from the Premier League in the last season. The Sun claimed Brooks would be available for around £40million, significantly less than the asking price of Sancho.
Manchester United has ended the hunt for talent a few days earlier than it is required. Although the transfer window is open till Friday United seems to have completed its transfer business and has given a wrap-up of the signal. The club seems happy with their lot after signing two future stars in the form of Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellestri.
Though United fans still crave of Brooks in United’s shirts. As the 23-year old has enough first-team experience along with tons of skills and abilities. Other fans hope they could see Pellestri could hit the ground running much before Diallo becomes eligible in January 2021.
David Brooks seems worthy enough to play for Old Trafford
Football Manager 2020 rates Brooks as a talented midfielder having some superb technical attributes. Even though he is still a very raw player but has plenty of potentials. The 23-year old can play off the right or in a more central role. Eddie Howe also commented on his EPL start by saying that Brooks has impressed a lot from the moment he stepped in. His creative performances are backed up by his professional attitude and a good lifestyle.
The midfielder is one of the very players under a contract with the club outside the Premier League. AFC Bournemouth signed the Welsh winger in 2018 in a recorded fee of £11.5 million from Sheffield United. He was given a 20 number jersey along with the four-year contract.
The Welsh winger is a complete feast to eyes when fully fit and in form. His creative performance is backed up by his professional attitude and The 23-year old had an impressive Premier League start. However, injuries bloated his 2019/20 campaign restricting him to only nine appearances.
Had United would have made a move for David Brooks the club would have received a lot of potential at a cheap price. On the other hand, the midfielder was tipped to have a brighter future by moving towards a club like United.
However, it seems neither Bournemouth is having no short of money nor is desperate to sell its priced asset. As they have done the fortune selling business earlier in summer. Coming back to United’s interest, it seems that Brooks’s name was only used to get Sancho at a cheaper price.
