Norwich City

Opinion: As Man United circle, Norwich City have a big decision to make but it’s surely an easy one?



Norwich City are looking nailed on to land a spot in the Premier League come May as they continue to put in some fine Championship performances.

Despite dropping points following a 2-2 draw with Reading in midweek, the Canaries remain in pole position in the table, and it would take something of a miracle for Daniel Farke’s men to fall away and allow both Leeds and Sheffield United to pip them to the post.

Farke has got his team playing some fine football, and crucially, they have become one of those teams who find a way to win even when they might not necessarily be at their best.

Some fine individual performances have caught the eye too at Carrow Road, with the likes of Teemu Pukki taking plenty of plaudits leading the line, but his teammates also chipping in with their fair share of excellent performances throughout the campaign.

And one man who has been key for Daniel Farke’s men is defender Ben Godrey, who has really come on leaps and bounds this season after spending last year out on loan with Shrewsbury Town.

The 21-year-old has held solid at the back for Norwich, allowing his talented teammates to take the attacking mantle and go and win games.

However, Godfrey is being linked with a move to Premier League giants Manchester United, and it represents a big decision for Norwich if the Red Devils do indeed come knocking in the summer.

Of course, the simple answer for the Canaries should just be a straight ‘no’, with Godfrey far too important to what the club are trying to achieve both in the short and long-term.

Big money can be a tempting proposition for any club, and for the player too, it can be hard for them to not have their head turned when the likes of United come knocking.

Godfrey has a good thing going though at Norwich, and while he might want to test himself higher up, Premier League football is coming his way next season barring a disaster, giving him the perfect opportunity to play week in week out, and show just how good he can be.

It might well work out for all involved, and allow Norwich to add a bit more to their valuation of a player who looks like he is going to go all the way to the top.
