Powell Already Catching the Eye


While this summer may not have been the busiest in terms of arrivals at Old Trafford, one new signing has already got a lot of United fans on Bet365 excited about the future.

Nick Powell arrived at the club from Crewe in the summer, earning a contract at United after a sensational season in League Two.

The 18-year old is not expected to be a major part of Sir Alex’s first-team squad this season, but Powell has been tipped to cause huge waves at the club in the future.

The midfielder has only been a United player for a matter of weeks, but he has already caught the eye of a number of senior players at the club.

The latest of those to be impressed by the attack-minded youngster is Rio Ferdinand, who believes Powell has the ability and self-confidence needed to succeed at the biggest club in the world.

"He has an unpredictable style and can play off-the-cuff. He can pull things out the hat that you don't expect.

"For a young lad to come into an environment like Manchester United  from a lower league club, you have to say he walked in with his shoulders back as if he's meant to be here,” said Ferdinand.

It will be interesting to see how the United manager uses Powell this season, whether the midfielder will be used in the cup competitions and sporadically in the league or sent out on loan in order to continue his development.

Powell has joined a club bursting with young, exciting talent. Not all manage to break through and establish themselves in Sir Alex’s first team, but Powell has all the attributes needed to be one of those that do succeed at Old Trafford.

The Bet365 Ray Winstone advert is set to return during football matches, next season, providing viewers with all the latest in-play betting odds.
