Man United youngster Max Taylor signs new contract after recovering from cancer

Max Taylor has signed a new one-year contract with Manchester United, the club has confirmed. 

The 2o-year-old defender has been at United’s academy since he was 14 and will remain at Old Trafford for at least another season after the announcement.

Taylor was diagnosed with testicular cancer in November 2018 and underwent a nine-week course of chemotherapy to beat the disease.

It was fantastic to see the youngster return to training for the first-time in September after being out of action for around 11 months.

He has played six times for Neil Wood’s U23-side in the Premier League 2 this term and was named in the matchday squad for United’s penultimate Europa League group stage game against Astana in November.

Taylor was sent out on loan to Northern Premier League side Stalybridge Celtic in January in order to gain some regular game time.

He made nine appearances for the non-league outfit before the coronavirus outbreak curtailed the season early.

Everyone at Stretty News would like to congratulate Max on his new deal and wish him luck in the next chapter of his incredible story.
