Max Taylor hopes for luck for third time as he searches for a loan club


Max Taylor got a glimpse of the glaring differences between the top and bottom of English professional football this week.

The Daily Mail reports that the 20-year-old defender was in talks about a loan transfer to Macclesfield this week, just half an hour before the club were liquidated for £ 500,000 in unpaid debts.

Taylor is late for luck and regular football after a second failed attempt to go on loan this summer.

Manchester Evening News reports that Taylor trained with the League One team MK Dons this summer, but nothing came of it.

They say he’s still looking for a loan deal and just wants to play football regularly at this point in his development.

It’s understandable that Taylor wants to make up for lost time.

He was diagnosed with testicular cancer in November 2018 (BBC), but has fortunately recovered now.

Taylor has shown exceptional strength of character and if there’s anyone at United who deserves a change of fortunes, it’s him.

With a whole host of defenders ahead of him in the pecking order, the best thing for him at this point in his career is to get a loan and play.

Whatever level he is at – he was ready to enter the National League at Macclesfield – he needs that playing experience that matters.

United haven’t used the loan system as much as some other English clubs to secure match time for their young stars, but that has changed somewhat this summer.

Taylor must benefit from it and it would be fantastic to see him play football regularly and make up for lost time.

Hopefully he gets lucky for the third time as he goes looking for a loan release before the transfer window closes.
