Manchester United's academy has produced many starlets in the past

Manchester United is a club known to many as one that gives the youth a lot of chance. From Sir Alex Ferguson to Louis van Gaal, the club has always promoted youth talent and discovered many stars in the process. It is given that the team which Mourinho is forming will surely be filled with many academy graduates. Here are five players who could make the cut of they continue their progression.

Swansea City v Manchester United - Carabao Cup Fourth Round

Axel Tuanzebe is a local lad and will always have the Old Trafford faithful on his side in the years to come. He is highly rated by Jose Mourinho who wanted to have him in his squad instead of buying a new defender at the start of the season when Rojo, Bailly, and Shaw were out injured. Tuanzebe is currently on loan at Aston Villa, trying to help them gain promotion back into the Premier League.

This opens up a huge window for Tuanzebe to claim a regular starting spot and replace either Jones or Smalling.
