Rangers Academy graduate Nathan Patterson is of interest to Man United ahead of the January transfer window, according to a 90min.com report.
Back in June, 90min.com reported that United were one of four Premier League clubs interested in Ibrox skipper James Tavernier.
At that stage, the 29-year-old was said to be a ‘viable alternative’ to Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier in the English giant’s search for a right-back.
United ended up strengthening in other areas during the summer and both Trippier and Tavernier stayed put at their respective clubs.
90min.com now reports, though, that after an indifferent start to the season from current options Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot, right-back is a priority for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of the winter window.
It’s suggested that a move for Tavernier remains a ‘possibility’ but that his understudy at Ibrox, 19-year-old Patterson, is now also of interest.
Patterson, who is currently away with Scotland on international duty, has also recently been linked with both Everton and Liverpool [The Sun], and this report asserts that the Red Devils are also keen, as are around a dozen other clubs around Europe.
Second Rangers star of interest to Man United
It’s little surprise to see Nathan Patterson linked with yet another massive club.
Although the teenager has still only made 20 senior appearances for the Gers, his potential is there for all to see and he has already shown that he’s capable of performing in the Europa League knockout stages.
Given that he’s tied down until 2024, Rangers will be in a strong position to negotiate if any bids land in January but many supporters won’t want the club’s finest Academy product for some time to leave for any price.
