Former West Bromwich Albion Star Linked With Huge PL Switch

Former West Bromwich Albion star Tosin Adarabioyo is being linked with a move to English giants Manchester United as his contract with Fulham expires this summer.

Having emerged from Manchester City‘s esteemed academy, making his debut under Pep Guardiola in 2016, the central defender joined the Baggies on loan and made 36 appearances for the club when current Port Vale boss Darren Moore was in charge.

West Bromwich Albion Could Force Surprise Managerial Change

The centre-back eventually earned a permanent move to Craven Cottage where he has played 132 times for Fulham across four seasons, three of which were in the Premier League. However, Adarabioyo’s time with the London outfit is set to come to an end this Sunday when Marco Silva’s side face Luton Town away from home on the final day of the campaign.

Nevertheless, he won’t be short of offers, according to the latest reports. Sky Sports News have revealed that 13-time Premier League champions Man United are keeping tabs on Adarabioyo’s situation at Fulham and will look to make a move for the 26-year-old.

Furthermore, the outlet are claiming that the Red Devils face stiff competition for the former West Bromwich Albion loanee from Newcastle United and even AC Milan in Italy.

It was announced on Tuesday morning that World Cup-winning defender Raphael Varane would be leaving Old Trafford at the end of the season as his contract is set to expire following the FA Cup final against Man City next Saturday, leaving a spot open at the back for Adarabioyo.

Adarabioyo has always been an impressive defender. While not achieving promotion in the 2018/19 season on loan at West Bromwich Albion, the centre-half proved himself to be a very capable defender who could consistently play in the Premier League, which he eventually did.

Having been born in Manchester, a switch to one of the biggest clubs in the world would be an incredible opportunity for him and given that Varane is leaving over the coming fortnight, he could certainly start next season at the Theatre of Dreams.
