Dylan Levitt scored a beauty this weekend, to ensure he remains firmly in Man United’s thoughts.
Manchester United’s first-team may be struggling at present, though at youth level, there are plenty of talented stars of the future emerging.
Credit must go to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the youth coaches for bringing this club back to its roots in that regard. The likes of Alejandro Garnacho, James Garner and Hannibal Mejbri are all knocking hard on the first-team door.
On top of that, there’s several other players who are out on loan looking to make a name for themselves. One of those guys, who has seemingly turned into the forgotten man, is Dylan Levitt.
The Wales international has a few first-team appearances for United under his belt, including a Europa League start back in 2019. However, the midfielder has faded away from the limelight since.
This term, Levitt has been spending his time with Dundee United over in the Scottish Premier League. The midfielder has become a mainstay in their starting line-up, looking pretty impressive for the most part.
As the season winds down to a close, the 20-year-old offered a timely reminder of his talent, by scoring an incredible solo goal against Hearts yesterday. See that goal here:
It’s easy to forget just how talented Levitt is – and he definitely didn’t look out of place when given his first-team chance at Old Trafford a few years ago.
He’s someone who sits in the midfield, playing that quarterback role, keeping it simple and giving the ball to more attack-minded teammates. Every top side has a player like that in it, hence why I reckon Levitt still has a future at the highest level.
No doubt we’re going to see an awful lot of change unfold at Old Trafford over the next twelve months and first impressions are everything. If Levitt can enjoy a good pre-season under Erik ten Hag, there’s every chance he will be given an opportunity to show us all what he can do.
I guess the problem for him is that there’s a lot of young lads in a similar situation. The likes of Hannibal and Garner are firmly in that category. Both have a considerably higher profile than Levitt, which could end up proving to be the difference.
