Whilst believing that would be a good signing for Manchester United, Norris can’t see the transfer happening, telling This is Futbol: “As a player and for the club I think he would be good, I think he’d bring a bit more quality than they already have in there – they do seem to like to have the one or the two sitting midfielders to allow the others to play, which is what Kalvin does.

“He allows your Raphinhas and the attacking players to do what they need to do, and he does that job in the centre mid which would suit Man United I think perfectly with the way they set up as well, so I think it would be a good signing and a good fit, I just couldn’t see it happening.”
