The young Man Utd stars to look out for
Alejandro Garnacho is the star name of the group, having shone on the run to the final and been called up to Argentina’s senior national team before even appearing on the bench for United’s first-team.
The 17-year-old, who has since made his club debut, joined from Atletico Madrid before Brexit regulations changed in 2020, when Alvaro Fernandez arrived from Real Madrid and Marc Jurado joined from Barcelona.
“The team-mates and the coach help me a lot to be here,” talented right-back Jurado said. “I am really happy, I keep going. I am doing well learning English.
“Alejandro and Alvaro are doing really well with the season so far. We have loads of good players in the academy, so I follow their steps. That’s it.”
Norwegian talent Isak Hansen-Aaroen and France youth international Willy Kambwala were others to join in 2020, along with Manchester City sharpshooter Charlie McNeill and Sunderland front man Joe Hugill.
“It’s a massive trophy for Under-18s – the biggest you can win,” Hugill said. “But for the club it would be a huge step.
“Whoever plays we’re all confident, anyone can step on that pitch and put a performance on. Whether it’s me or not I want the boys to do well.”
