5 Man Utd players are leaving Old Trafford in the next...

Manchester United have by no means applauded their efforts this summer after some lackluster months of recruiting.

But if the home window slams on Friday, there will still be time to take some smart steps and give younger players the chance to secure a regular football for themselves.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shown a willingness to put his trust in the youth but as the stakes rise at Old Trafford, their chances may be found elsewhere than United first team.

Young defender Teden Mengi could be one of those looking for new pastures in the meantime.

The middle half has a growing reputation at United, but given their struggles this season, it might not be the best time to throw a teenager into the mix.

Mengi made his only appearance from the bank in a Europa League duel with LASK last year.

Moving to the football league could prove beneficial for the 18-year-old as United are undoubtedly aware of his long-term potential.

This could also be the case with Ethan Laird, who continues to be part of the club’s U23 squad.

Laird was one of several United youngsters to impress in a European game against Astana last season.

However, he impressed sufficiently and shortly afterwards received another opportunity in the same competition against the Dutch team AZ Alkmaar.

The full-back signed a new deal earlier this year and is another one who can benefit from a few minutes in one of the lower levels of England.

Tim Fosu-Mensah is a name that came on stage but could now be set for a third loan spell.

After his debut in 2016, the 22-year-old has never nailed a first team spot.

Injuries played a major role in Fosu-Mensah’s knee ligament surgery last year.

He played in United’s disappointing opening season defeat to Crystal Palace but has not been seen since.

Solskjaer has spoken a lot about the defender, who had time at Palace and Fulham, but another loan move could be in sight.

Di’Shon Bernard is one of the players who was offered a first team opportunity in the Asta game with Astana.

Dylan Levitt, who also played in the duel, recently moved to Charlton on loan, showing that United want their young players to play in a different environment.

Bernard’s only first team outing last season was that European game, but it remains highly regarded.

He came to Manchester late after spending much of his youth career at Chelsea.

Moving to a club further down the English pyramid could help the 20-year-old develop.

From the young to the not-so-young and forgotten men in Lee Grant.

The goalkeeper sits in fourth place in the pecking order after Dean Henderson’s return to Old Trafford.

The 37-year-old went on one outing last season and is happy to have a few minutes.

Grant has spent most of his career in English football’s second division but may need to go deeper if he’s interested in getting some playing time.

Any move, however, may depend on Sergio Romero’s ability to force a move out of Manchester, as reported.
