Zidane Iqbal expected to leave Manchester United this summer
Zidane Iqbal impressed Erik ten Hag on pre-season tour last year, and the 20-year-old was kept at the club for the entire season despite not making a single senior appearance.
One could understand Iqbal wanting to leave United — whether it’s on loan or permanently — because he possesses a lot of ability and that will go to waste if he’s only getting game time with the U21s. It’s time for him to kick on.
Furthermore, Iqbal was an unused substitute on 17 occasions for the first team last term, but hopefully he learned something from training with the first team.
According to Manchester World, Iqbal sees his immediate future away from United and the club are willing to let him leave this summer.
It is understood that a departure on loan is more likely, although a permanent switched cannot be ruled out at this stage.
United also have another young talented midfielder coming through in Kobbie Mainoo, who will be hoping to push for minutes in the first team during the 2023/24 campaign.
The reason United didn’t allow Iqbal leave in January was probably down to the dire injury situation. At that point in the season, we had lost Scott McTominay, Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek to injury.
