Manchester United youngster Noam Emeran made a name for himself in pre-season and continues to show his potential.

There was an agonising end to Manchester United’s first under-21 game of the season this week. An injury-time goal saw United slip to a 3-2 loss.

The highlight of United’s performance came from Noam Emeran, who had looked to have secured a point by scoring a 90th minute equaliser.

Emeran began the move before latching back onto a pass from Marc Jurado, to fire the ball into the bottom corner.

Noam Emeran needs loan move

Noam Emeran was one of the bright performers for Manchester United in pre-season. He only played in two matches, and made his mark.

He created three chances in the friendly win over Leeds, providing an assist for Joe Hugill to score, and managed to get on the scoresheet himself.

Emeran also had a lively display in the draw with Athletic Bilbao, coming off the bench to help United equalise.

He was also involved in an under-21 friendly win over Chester in early August, finishing off a swift counter-attack to net the fourth in a 4-0 victory.

His latest impact-making performance for the under-21s against Palace underlined his quality, and continued where he left off last season, where he struck four goals in his final three games.

A loan move is now in the 20-year-old’s best interests. Emeran’s journey at United has been hampered by injuries and now he is fit and showing what he is capable of. United need to harness this and give him the challenge he requires.

Loan interest in Emeran

There should be interest in the former Amiens winger before the transfer deadline on September 1.

In July after his goal against Leeds, it was reported that clubs had shown attention to Emeran, with a view to a loan move.

French outlet Footmercato claimed Anderlecht, Coventry City, Sunderland, Strasbourg and Vitesse Arnhem are interested.

Hopefully this interest will develop and Emeran gets an opportunity to play first team football.
