Manchester United

Escape route: These 2 Man United outcasts must seek Old Trafford exit this summer

The biggest clubs in football tend to produce the greatest volume of talented youngsters. 

Unfortunately, it’s very difficult for these wonderkids to progress within the club as the standard of, and pressures upon, the first team are so high.

European super clubs, such as Manchester United, often have a whole clutch of youth prospects out on loan at any one time so that these talented up-and-comers can get first team action elsewhere. 

This current Manchester United squad contains some exciting prospects with a high level of potential.

For their benefit, loan moves to fellow Premier League sides where they’re more likely to get on the pitch would be ideal.

Gaining Premier League experience specifically, at this stage in their development, will better equip these youngsters for life in the division with the Red Devils when their time does come.

Axel Tuanzebe

The 20-year-old England under-21 international has already made his Old Trafford bow in the Premier League, and many consider him the future of the United back line.

He joined Aston Villa on loan in the Championship for the second half of last season, but will be hoping for a temporary switch to a fellow top flight side this time around.

The likes of Cardiff, Huddersfield or Southampton could prove to be very astute destinations for Tuanzebe.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah

The 20-year-old Dutchman is a versatile, defensively minded player, capable of slotting in a deep midfield role or anywhere across the back line. He has already featured numerous times for United.

Fosu-Mensah spent the 2017/18 season on loan at Crystal Palace where he got plenty of first team action and impressed the Selhurst Park crowds.

Despite his progress last term, Mourinho may feel that gaining more playing experience than he can promise at Old Trafford would be the best thing for the Netherlands international again.

A return to Selhurst Park would probably be favourable, otherwise Watford or Fulham would be sensible destinations.
