Manchester United’s academy has a rich history of developing future stars, not least the Class of ’92 which included the likes of Ryan Giggs and David Beckham. But who are the club’s current Under-21 prospects trying to follow Marcus Rashford to Old Trafford?

The Red Devils’ present group of young talents play in the Premier League 2 Division 1 under lead coach Dave Hughes. Manchester United’s U21 squad also play a majority of their home matches at Leigh Sports Village. While Old Trafford hosts at least three fixtures each season.
