Manchester United have some very exciting youth prospects in their U18 and U23’s squads this season, with many looking to develop themselves into first-team players at the club, much like Marcus Rashford did under Louis van Gaal last season. Jose Mourinho and youth are two things which many do not feel go together, but they are and they will. United have a very exciting period ahead of them in the first team this season, but at the various youth levels, there is some excitement there too. Nicky Butt, a former United midfielder, and Class of ’92 graduate has taken over as the overall head of the Academy, making some changes along the way and bringing in some exciting youth prospects, who could form great careers at the club.
The likes of Callum Gribbin, Josh Harrop, and Sean Goss are some of the exciting players currently in the U23 squad, but players such as Indy Boonen, Angel Gomes, and DJ Buffonge are in the U18’s squad and have been performing well this season, with two defeats in their first two matches, then two successive 5-1 victories against Everton and Middlesbrough with Gomes and Boonen both performing well in both matches. United brought in Tahith Chong, Nishan Burkart, Lee O’Connor and a few others this summer, players who have made the U18’s much stronger and players who will achieve goals themselves and help their United teammates to meet their goals too.
