Our Manchester United fans here inside the Transfer Tavern are excited about the next wave of youth academy prospects coming through the ranks, with Jose Mourinho not looking to break United’s 80-year-old record of having a youth academy player named in every matchday squad.

Mourinho’s policy is this, in order to promote an academy player he must be there to be a first-team fixture and be able to contribute towards the betterment of the team.
