The 20-year-old sensation emerged from Manchester City’s academy before sealing a £42.5 million move to Chelsea, despite his roots as a United fan growing up in the Red hotspot of Wythenshawe.
Palmer, now a winger, has been making waves at Stamford Bridge, showcasing his talent with a remarkable goal at Old Trafford during Wednesday’s clash against Chelsea.
After United’s 2-1 victory over the Blues, Patrice Evra humorously commented on Palmer’s decision to join City, despite his allegiance to United. Evra quipped, “I think it’s not a great moment.
I think he let us down! I need to talk to his parents! He grew up a United fan, you end up playing for City and you score a goal against United? He must not be a real fan.”
Palmer’s standout performances have been a rare bright spot in Chelsea’s season. Despite the 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford,
where United had opportunities to secure a more substantial victory, Palmer’s individual brilliance has not gone unnoticed.
