Manchester United’s disastrous injury spell last season was painful for United fans at the time but may well have given them the best player to emerge from their academy since the illustrious ‘Class of ’92’ shocked the Premier League with their succession to the first team.
Marcus Rasford was the shining light in a season of mixed fortunes for the Red Devils, his rise to the first team setup was nothing short of remarkable and has restored faith in a youth setup that seemed to be faltering in recent years. The famed United academy was subject to a wholesale review and revamp last season with Nicky Butt taking the reigns of the club’s illustrious production line, and the benefits were almost instantaneous.
Where can the club go from here though? Can United fans expect a Rasford each season, maybe not, but the future looks bright and they have every right to get excited about the prospects in their academy. The punters in the Transfer Tavern have put their heads together and tipped these FIVE to follow in the footsteps of Mr. Rashford next season…
Hit Rashford below to see FIVE who could follow his rise next season!
