Manchester United’s 25-man Premier League squad has now been officially announced.
The squad had to be submitted to the Premier League by 5pm yesterday with no more than 17 players who aren’t considered a ‘Home Grown Player’, somebody who has has been registered to the FA for at least three seasons prior to turning 21.
For United, there are no big surprises as to everybody who is in the squad but the inclusion of Marnick Vermijl and Davide Petrucci is great news.
As for Petrucci’s inclusion in the squad, it’s another opportunity for him to fulfil on his undoubted potential that has been held back due to injuries.
Van Gaal also has the option to add as many home-grown United-21s players as he wants throughout the season.
