Man Utd ‘eyeing January transfer move for Leeds star Tyler Adams’ after impressive World Cup showing
MANCHESTER UNITED are eyeing up a January transfer for Tyler Adams, according to reports.
Adams, 23, enjoyed an impressive World Cup for the US national team in Qatar as he captained them into the knockout rounds.

And now Man Utd are considering a move for the defensive midfielder to bolster the team’s spine.
However, they have next to no chance of signing him, according to TEAMTALK.
They report that while the interest from the Red Devils is genuine, both Leeds and Adams remain committed to each other.
Adams signed for Leeds last summer in a £17million move from RB Leipzig, with the potential to rise to £20m.
The deal he signed has him contracted to Elland Road until 2027, and TEAMTALK report he is more than happy with his current circumstances.
Ahead of the Last 16 clash against Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands, Adams had a number of impressive stats in his favour for the USA.
He had won the most duels, made the most tackles, made the most passes into the final third and won possession the most times in the defensive third.
Leeds have also been reaping the rewards from his strong form at club level.
HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON THE WORLD CUP
Adams is second only to Fulham’s Joao Palhinha for tackles made, with his ability to win the ball back in the defensive third a particular key note.
United want another midfielder to help out when Casemiro is rested, and Adams fits the description of a player who breaks up play in a similar fashion.
