Manchester United have a bunch of players who have won everything at youth level but are yet to establish themselves at the senior team, although they are all still young they are also reaching a stage of their careers when they must show if they have what it takes to be a professional footballer for Manchester United. I am talking about he likes of Scott Wooton, Davide Petrucci, Marnick Vermijl, Ryan Tunnicliffe and Jesse Lingard, who all were born either in 1991 or 1992.
They have all been on the fringes of the first team for a couple of seasons and Wooton, Vermijl and Tunnicliffe have already made their debut for the team formerly managed by Sir Alex Ferguson. While it is quite obvious that Reserves football is not the place for them anymore, remains unclear whether any of them will be trusted by new manager David Moyes or will be forced to look for new pastures, either or a loan or a permanent move.
All of them but the Belgian right-back Vermijl boast a certain degree of experience at Championship level, so they should not encounter any problem to find a team interested in getting them at this level. Also remain to be seen if United decide to cash in or give them another chance to shine elsewhere and cement a place at Old Trafford, following the same path of Jonny Evans, Tom Cleverley or Danny Welbeck. Whatever the final decision is, there is no question they have been nurtured in the right way at Carrington and have an outstanding chance to become professional footballers.
