'I'll be sad to leave'... U23s talent confirms he is departing Manchester United

Max Taylor has confirmed his departure from Manchester United.

Max Taylor, Manchester United's young defender, has announced his departure.

Taylor was appointed to United's under-23 squad to face Derby County on Monday night.


    This is the final game of the season for the under-23s, and his last opportunity to play before his contract expires.

    “I'll be sad to leave United, it'll always be my club,” Taylor told MUTV, “but I'm ready for the next step of my career.”

    When asked about his future plans, Taylor said that when he becomes a free agent, he would accept offers from outside of England.

    “I've always enjoyed the thought of playing abroad,” he said. I'm open to either.”

    Taylor was on trial in Portsmouth earlier this year. No agreement has yet been reached, although it is possible that one will be reached once his United contract expires at the end of June.

    Last summer, the young center-back saw loan deals to MK Dons and then Macclesfield fall through before securing a move to Kidderminster, where he scored in his first month.

    His time at Kidderminster was cut short when the non-league season was canceled at the start of 2021.

    He then returned to United's academy, where he currently plays under-23 football. His last game was tonight's game against Derby.

    Taylor has also faced significant adversity in his career, including a time away from the game after being diagnosed with cancer.

    Taylor was cleared to return to work a year after completing chemotherapy in 2018.

    He traveled with the first team to Astana for the Europa League tie in 2019 but did not participate.

    Taylor was one of the players United expected to release this summer, according to the MEN, and his departure comes as no surprise.

    He wants to play first-team football now that he is 21, and there is no way for him to do so at Old Trafford.

    He's had a taste of it on loan, and a stint with the under-23s has helped him make up for the lost time. Now is his chance to weigh his choices and make an informed decision on the next step in his career.
