While dealing with the whole Cristiano Ronaldo situation, Manchester United is still trying to sign some new players, but also wants a lot of squad members out of the team in the next couple of weeks that remain of the transfer window before it closes. A lot of the players on their way out are youngsters looking for minutes.

One of the youth players the club is willing to let go surprisingly is James Garner. The MUFC football director John Murtough has made the decision to put Garner on the transfer list this summer, according to Samuel Luckhurst. The club believes that they could get around £15-20 million for the academy player.

This fee would cover the expenses of the transfer of Adrien Rabiot, which will cost the Red Devils £20 million and it is expected to happen throughout this week before the Liverpool game next Monday. There are up to four Premier League clubs following the Garner situation that could make a bid in the next few days according to Fabrizio Romano.

The 21-year-old has spent the last year and a half loaned out to Nottingham Forest in the Championship. The midfielder was a crucial part of the team’s promotion to the Premier League this season as he was a regular starter with them last campaign. Although Forest was interested in signing him back, they have reportedly moved on after signing other players in that position.

Is he not good enough?

James Garner is one of the most talented footballers that has come out from the academy in recent years. Despite making his senior debut three and a half years ago, he hasn’t been given a chance to play regularly with the first team. The Englishman only played 22 minutes under Erik ten Hag during pre-season and the manager seems to prefer Fred and McTominay over him, unlike the fans opinion.
