A trio of Manchester United youngsters could see their short-term futures resolved in the coming weeks ahead of the upcoming season, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

Erik ten Hag has gauged if any young stars could help with his new project in Manchester having cast his eye over the squad during pre-season with Alejandro Garnacho among those who have caught the eye.

The likes of Tahith Chong, Facundo Pellistri, and Amad Diallo are likely to go out on loan once again, having spent time away from the club last season as well.

The forward line is quite stacked with options on the wide areas, which leaves them considerably down in ten Hag’s plans.

As for Garnacho, despite his impressive displays, he could join the others in potentially heading out on loan this season for regular first-team football, while talks are planned over a new deal for the 18-year-old.

Writing in his CaughtOffside SubStack column, Romano said: “I believe there’s a good chance Tahith Chong, Facundo Pellistri, and Amad Diallo will all go on loan this summer.”

“There is a meeting scheduled between Garnacho’s agent and Manchester United in the coming weeks. This meeting will be to decide what’s best for Garnacho’s future, in terms of staying at the club or being sent out on loan. Manchester United are set to offer him a new contract, but he needs to play football.”

The Sports View

The pre-season so far has been quite helpful in helping ten Hag get an idea about who can succeed at Man United moving forward. Chong, Pellistri, and Diallo may not be the ones to lead the attacking department in the future unless they turn their situation around drastically.

Chong, for example, has been one of the worst performers in the friendlies, strongly suggesting his future lies away from the Mancunians in the process. Pellistri and Diallo have not warranted much either, with the latter being a major concern due to the £37.2million investment made after signing him from Atalanta (Sky Sports).

That being said, all of them would still have a chance to prove their worth should they succeed in their respective loan destinations that are likely to be known shortly. Garnacho, on the other hand, is a completely different case as he has shown all of the qualities of becoming a future superstar.

A new contract is essential with Real Madrid (The Sun) and Juventus (Manchester Evening News) being interested in his signature. As for his temporary exit, it is important to find him the right club to help with his progression if it is decided that a loan would be best for him right now.
