Reading are interested in signing Tyler Blackett on loan from Manchester United, according to the Daily Mirror.
One potential partnership that could be forged is between Reading and Manchester United due to Jaap Stam’s close relation to the Premier League side.
Simultaneously, the appointment of Jose Mourinho and his past history with young players, it is looking unlikely that he will use a variety of young players at the same time like Louis van Gaal had to out of necessity.
A likely victim of the regime change is Tyler Blackett who has fallen out of favour at Manchester United despite featuring regularly in the 2014-2015 Premier League season.
Tyler Blackett spent last season on loan at Celtic in the Scottish Premier League and it is looking likely that Tyler Blackett will be loaned out once again for the following season.
Jaap Stam is reportedly keen to bring the 22-year-old defender to Reading on a temporary basis, as a potential replacement for Michael Hector who has now returned to Chelsea.
