Football Insider claims today that a trio of clubs are monitoring Kean Bryan ahead of a potential summer move.
The defender, formerly of Manchester City, has finally been given his Premier League chance this season after a disrupted start to his career as a Blade.
Signed by Chris Wilder, Bryan has had a number of injuries but has recovered fully this season and enjoyed a fine moment of personal glory when he headed in at Old Trafford.
But with his contract dwindling down, United on the verge of relegation, and no Chris Wilder around anymore, it looks like Bryan might be one of the United players who leaves.
Swansea, Fulham, and Burnley are all said to be keen on Bryan. And while it might seem like a shame to lose the defender, it’s not the end of the world given the magnitude of the summer ahead.
Kean Bryan is just ok, nothing more
This bizarre narrative that some hold just because of a few decent games in the Premier League that Bryan is now the saviour at left centre-back, is frankly a bit embarrassing.
Yes, he’s done ok on occasion. But that’s all it has been, ok performances. He’s not been excellent, he’s not dominated the position, and he’s certainly made more than one mistake.
Case and point against Leicester City, where Bryan was all over the place in a team which, granted, was a bit wayward itself. But that day showed his weaknesses in abundance and the Foxes simply exploited it.
There are bigger fish for United to fry this summer. The likes of John Egan, Sander Berge, and Jack O’Connell are more important to the cause.
Keeping them is essential. Allowing squad players who have played less than 20 games in nearly three years to leave should not really worry Blades fans.
Should Bryan stay, we’d love him to do well. But we aren’t going to clamour for the ex-City man to stay put when the reality is, he’s contributed very little.
