Manchester United are currently having a season to forget but the club continues to win acclaim for their development of young players. Jonny Evans, Tom Cleverley, Danny Welbeck and Adnan Januzajare some players who have successfully broken into the first team after playing for the club's youth ranks. Here is a list of 5 young Reds who deseve a chance to prove themselves in the first team.
#1 Nick Powell
The young midfielder announced himself to the world with a brilliant 25-yeard goal against Wigan Athletic on his Manchester United debut. Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson purchased Powell from Crewe Alexandria for £4 million and the youngster took just 1 game to score his first goal for United. The 19-year-old is currently on loan at the same club he scored against where he has amassed a total of 10 goals and is one of Wigan's star players.
It won't be long before David Moyes gives him a place in the first team next season. The greatest part is that Powell plays at the center of the midfield as an attacking midfielder, the area where Manchester United's vunerabilities lie. While it is too soon to compare Nick to the legendary Paul Scholes there is strong feeling at Old Trafford that Powell can hav the same impact the ginger haired magician had at Old Trafford.
