5 Man Utd players who could make their debut vs Young Boys under Ralf Rangnick

As the Ralf Rangnick era at Manchester United begins to take shape, so could go the careers of a number of young stars.

The Red Devils welcome BSC Young Boys on Wednesday night, a dead-rubber fixture from their point of view, having already qualified for the knockout stages and topped Group F.

With the pressure off, Rangnick is keen to take a look at a host of youngsters and could hand five of them debuts as substitutes or even put them in his starting XI.

Six academy prospects have been added to the club’s Champions League B list squad, with each of them available to feature at Old Trafford.

Join the debate! Should Rangnick fully rotate his XI? Give us your verdict here.

The six, including Shola Shoretire, would usually be lining up for United’s Under-19s on a European matchday.

But they have also already qualified for the knockout stages of the UEFA Youth League and were not needed for their final group game against Young boys.

17-year-old winger Shoretire made his debut against Newcastle in February, becoming the club’s youngest-ever debutant in European competition against Real Sociedad four days later.

But who are the rest? Mirror Football takes a look.

Bjorn Hardley

This youngster made headlines last month as part of Cristiano Ronaldo ‘s winning team during training and first featured in the senior setup ahead of the Red Devils’s 2-2 draw with Atalanta.

Born in Tillburg, the Netherlands, Hardley holds dual Dutch and Suriname citizenship.

The towering left-footed centre-back signed from NEC Breda in 2019 after impressing scout Rene Moonen, who urged the club to snap him up.

Hardley went on to establish himself as a regular for the Under-18s side last season before soon making his Under-23 debut.

Player-coach Paul McShane has been working to develop his game and, alongside fellow young defender Teden Mengi, looks to be blossoming at the back.

Charlie Wellens

Son of former Doncaster Rovers manager Richie, who made one appearance for United in 1999, Wellens was first called up to the senior squad for training in September 2019.

The 19-year-old then signed a new contract in the summer of 2020 amid claims from The Sun that there had been interest from Italian giants Inter Milan.

Wellens started out as a midfielder but has recently been turned into full-back, boasting a brilliant range of passing and racking up three assists this campaign.

Able to play at right and left-back, Rangnick might benefit from such versatility.

Zidane Iqbal

Born in Manchester to a Pakistani father and Iraqi mother, Iqbal was picked up by the Red Devils while playing for his local side, Sale United.

The 18-year-old can operate at a number 10 or go from box-to-box and cites former Arsenal star Mesut Ozil as his idol.

And his playing style is as dynamic as his international status, being eligible to represent England, Iraq and Pakistan.

However, Iqbal received an Iraqi passport in May and has represented the nation at youth level.

He made his debut in September against the United Arab Emirates’ under-23s team – having made the starting lineup – and a month later, the teenager scored his first goal for the Iraq’s U23s, captaining the side.

October also saw Iqbal score against Atalanta in the Youth League, a 4-2 home win.

Charlie Savage

Boasting a recognisable surname, the young Welshman is another youngster whose father fans may be familiar with.

Son of former Premier League midfielder and Wales international Robbie, Savage scored three goals and registered seven assists in 23 appearances for the Red Devils’ Under-18s last season.

Like Iqbal, he operates well in a box-to-box role and his exciting displays saw him rewarded with a professional deal in April.

The playmaker has followed in his father’s footsteps by representing Wales’ youth teams.

Dad Robbie began his career at United and was a member of their FA Youth Cup winning side in 1992.

Upon his son’s inclusion in the squad, the Macclesfield Town chief tweeted: “Today is probably the proudest day of my life.”

Sam Mather

Hailing from Salford, Ronaldo-loving Mather is a quick winger who will be hoping to show Rangnick some flair.

The 17-year-old has risen through United’s academy and been a part of England ‘s U18s this term after signing a pro contract in September.

Mather’s deal came after he made headlines from his goal against Leeds’ U18 in August by replicating Ronaldo’s iconic ‘siu’ while celebrating.

If the starlet gets anywhere close to the five-time Ballon d’Or winners’ level, United have a true talent on their hands.
