New Pogbas: Man Utd Fear Losing SIX Starlets In 2015 On Free Transfers

Manchester United are fearful over the futures of six of their brightest young talents, echoing the situation that saw Paul Pogba join Juventus on a free transfer two summers ago.

A series of six of their hottest young prospects could depart the club for nothing next summer, putting them on red alert.

Pogba departed, having not been given enough opportunities by Alex Ferguson, but by contrast, three of those who could leave have played key roles for Man Utd under Louis van Gaal this season.

James Wilson, 19, has played a significant amount of football for Van Gaal, and has been keeping Radamel Falcao out of the first team, showing his quality.

Both Tyler Blackett and Paddy McNair, 20 and 19 respectively, have covered in defence as injuries have caused problems to Man Utd’s preferred players.

Jesse Lingard, a talented winger, was involved with Man Utd’s first team during pre season.

Reece James and Andreas Perreira are also considered to be hot projects for the future.

However, Man Utd now face a difficult task convincing all six to commit their futures, with the players able to discuss deals with other clubs from January 1 2015.

Man Utd Starlet Seeks Permanent First Team Role

Manchester United’s young defender Tyler Blackett is hoping to return to action after serving his suspension for his sending off against Leicester City, and is hoping to earn a permanent place in the first team through his displays, as reported by the Daily Express.

Injuries and suspensions in the defence have seen Louis van Gaal turn to 12 different players to construct his defence over the course of the still young season, with only six Premier League games having been played.

Blackett missed the clash against West Ham after being sent off against Leicester, having hauled down Jamie Vardy and given away a penalty.

He is, however, now keen to return and implant himself permanently into the manager’s thoughts.

Blackett said: “Obviously, I want to play in every game and I am trying to impress the manager enough to keep my place in his team.

“At first, I would have been happy just to gain experience by being in and around the squad. But now that I have played a few games, it is one of those situations when you are hungry for more.

“There is healthy competition among the defenders. We have banter in training and we are all pushing each other to improve.

“Marcos [Rojo] and Daley [Blind] have both come in and I think we have a good connection between us. We all want to succeed.”

Marcos Rojo filled in in the centre of defence last weekend, despite being a natural full back, and Blackett will have to win his position back from him.

Youngster Paddy McNair is also in contention to continue against Everton.
