Manchester United are reportedly ready to give chances to James Garner to showcase his talent at Old Trafford as per the report in English outlet The Telegraph.
The 21-year-old was given his senior debut back in 2019 by former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. However, following the youngster’s struggle to break into the first eleven, the Englishman was sent out on loan last term.
Meanwhile, the midfielder is enjoying a stellar campaign out on loan at Nottingham Forest this season, scoring three goals and notching up four assists in 32 appearances in the Championship. The youngster also proved his worth against Premier League clubs in the F.A Cup where Steve Cooper’s side went all the way to the quarterfinal before losing to Liverpool by a narrow 1-0 margin.
As per the report, Garner will get his opportunity to showcase his talent at Manchester United next season and he could even be given regular first-team action if the midfielder manages to impress. However, the youngster’s future at Old Trafford will be dependent on the next permanent manager.
Following a productive loan spell, giving James Garner chances to showcase his talent will be a very good decision. However, imposing the responsibility of becoming the Red Devils’ midfield general will be a huge ask for the youngster at this tender age.
Therefore, the Old Trafford outfit should sign a new defensive midfielder in the summer in order to resolve their midfield issues. Meanwhile, Manchester United are in search of a new permanent manager, while Erik Ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino are reportedly the leading candidates to become the next manager.
And both of them had shown their prowess in developing young talents. So, Garner will benefit from the appointment of either one of the aforementioned bosses. Fans are waxing lyrical about the Dutchman.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are in danger of missing out on the opportunity to qualify for the Champions League next season. Without a place in Europe’s elite club competition, the Red Devils will struggle to persuade their first choice options in the transfer market. So, the new manager might have to go with the youngsters next season.
