Joshua Harrop and Joel Castro Pereira signing new contracts with Manchester United has continued a recent trend for academy players.
Over the last 12 months the likes of Timothy Fosu-Mensah, RoShaun Williams, Callum Gribbin, Tyler Blackett and Paddy McNair have all signed deals with Man United and committed their future to the club.
It’s really exciting to see some of the progress Man United’s youngsters are making at every level, whether it be Fosu-Mensah making the step up from the U18s to the U21s after just one season or McNair earning himself a new deal after impressing Louis van Gaal in his breakthrough campaign.
Gribbin is a player who fans should keep an eye out for. Bearing in mind he is only 16, Gribbin had an impressive impact with the U18s last season despite only being a schoolboy at the time and he’s certainly one to watch over the next few years.
