It is also being reported by the publication that a full-time promotion to the first-team is inevitable.
Garner featured on the club’s tour of Asia this summer, as he scored in the side’s 2-0 win over Perth Glory.
Garner’s promise of first-team football comes amid a restructure of the club’s academy, as ex-head of the academy Nicky Butt was appointed in the new role of head of first-team development.
The fans seemed excited at the news of Garner’s promise of first-team football and took to Twitter to tweet about it.
Here is a selection of tweets from Manchester United fans following the reports about Garner:
Honestly this is brilliant if true. After what i saw against a weakened Chelsea side on Sunday, he cant be a worse option

Love that, sounds like next season would be a perfect time to make him a starter. Give him a few minutes vs the bottom teams in the league and develop him carefully
