Two footed wing wizard set to sign new contract at Manchester United – report

Reports state that Ethan Williams will soon sign a professional deal with Manchester United.

The 18-year-old, coming off a stellar season, alternated between the treble-winning u18s and the u21s.

He was a vital member of both teams, contributing nine assists and 19 goals across all age group events.

Williams “signed a pre-professional contract earlier in the season, which is set to officially begin this summer,” according to a story published by the Manchester Evening News.

It is unknown why Williams, who was of legal age to sign a professional contract right away, chose to sign a pre-professional contract before this odd arrangement.

However, it is not surprising that the club has attempted to lock him down for the long term given that he is one of the academy’s shining stars.

Though it is technically his left foot, it is very hard to determine which of these ambipedal wingers’ feet is stronger.

The young player is a superior ball striker who outperforms his teammates by delivering from a wide range and making long-range shots.

Like Mason Greenwood, another graduate of the United academy, Williams is a difficult player to mark because of his ability to cut in or take on defenders on the outside.

The young player’s ability to fit into a variety of positions is another benefit of being at ease on either side.

Williams prefers to play on the left wing, although he can also play well on the right and has even filled in further back as a left-back and wing-back.

Williams, who was signed from Rochdale at the age of 14, has shown promise throughout the age groups, but his move to the red side of Manchester presented a challenge because of his ties to rivals Manchester City.

His uncle, the nephew of Alex Williams, played 125 games as a goalie for Manchester City throughout the 1980s.

Looking to follow in the footsteps of his uncle into the senior professional game, albeit in a different shade of kit, pre-season may be the first chance for Williams to make an impression as many first-team players will be away at international tournaments over the summer.
