21-year-old Sean Goss has spent the past five years at Manchester United, leaving Exeter City in 2012, but he’s set to leave without ever making a first-team appearance at Old Trafford- as QPR edge towards a deal for him.
Impressing with the reserves this season, Goss has been unable to make an impact in the first-team squad but has still attracted attention- and QPR could now be set to hand him his big break, with the struggling Championship side desperately needing a boost.
Costing an initial outlay of £500k, Goss will link-up with another former United midfielder in Ravel Morrison; who is currently training with the West London side.
Not at all. The likelihood of Goss making an impact at Old Trafford is slim, due to the wealth of depth available to Jose Mourinho in the first-team and there being other top-class youngsters in the side. On top of that, Mourinho isn’t known for handing opportunities to youngsters anyway.
At 21, it’s the right time to leave and he’s made a good account of himself. QPR, with first-team football, can give him the platform to make an impression and build a successful career. However, the danger is that the West London side aren’t a club that’s run well these days.
