According to a BBC Sport story, United is apparently considering emergency loan arrangements due to a lack of finances

Therefore, following Marcus Rashford’s path to fame and graduating from Manchester United’s academy would be ideal

Charlie McNeill, who aspires to be Erik ten Hag’s solution, please step up

To give Charlie McNeill an opportunity
Charlie McNeill, the first youth player to receive his first team bow under Erik ten Hag, made his Manchester United debut earlier this season against Real Sociedad

Now, in a few years, will McNeill just be remembered as a footnote, or can he make this into something more significant

For about a year, McNeill has been on the outside of the first team. When the squad was short on forwards owing to injuries last season, there were cries for United to bring him through

Charlie McNeill was given a chance and made his Manchester United debut earlier this season against Real Sociedad, becoming the first young player to do so under Erik ten Hag

Will McNeill only be remembered as a footnote in a few years or can he turn this into something more significant

McNeill has been outside the first team for over a year. There were shouts for United to bring him through last season when the team was short on forwards due to injury

Since his six-minute appearance in the Europa League when McNeill was 19 years old, he has not received another opportunity. Since then, he has just once made the bench

The young player did appear in United’s winter friendly against Cadiz and Real Betis, but they came as a replacement and lacked opportunities to contribute offensively


McNeill will be motivated to succeed after seeing teammate Alejandro Garnacho, who won the FA Youth Cup, make the transition

McNeill has an excellent scoring record in the club’s academy and scored five goals during United’s Youth Cup winning run, close to Garnacho’s seven

He has scored 46 goals for United’s academy squads, including four this year. He’ll be eager to get 2023 started

The talented former Manchester City player is at an age where he needs to play either on a regular basis or on a loan

However, given the lack of striker options, it’s unlikely that United will loan him out. In order to avoid being caught in the middle, United should give McNeill the chance to demonstrate his abilities

He should sit on the bench for United’s Carabao Cup quarterfinal matchup against Charlton

If Ten Hag has the guts to take a risk, United might find something more valuable in McNeill than a temporary loan of a mercenary

He might just require one start. Simply ask Marcus Rashford how his chance went
