Potential De Gea replacement keen on a move to Manchester United

May 22, 2017, 01:00

Manchester United could hand debuts to Zachary Dearnley, Angel Gomes, Josh Harrop, Demetri Mitchell and Matthew Willock against Crystal Palace on the Premier League's final day.

But when the player in question is 23-year-old Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba - who's been a lightning rod for criticism since his record £89.3 million transfer last summer - it's easy to understand why manager Jose Mourinho wants someone else to take the heat.

He is one of a number of young players Mourinho will use as he saves his first team for Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax.

With manager Jose Mourinho opting to rest established stars ahead of next week's Europa League final, Pereira and Kieran O'Hara will be the goalkeepers in the squad for the visit of Palace and it is the junior Portugal global previously tipped for greatness by the boss that will get the nod.

Romero said: "I played one year with Gabbiadini in Sampdoria in Italy and a lot of training".

Fosu-Mensah will be accompanied by a number of other youngster as Mourinho confirmed that a number of players from the academy will be involved against Palace.

"I'm really happy with both of them".

Joel will play against Crystal Palace and Sergio will play in the final. Scott McTominay, another who debuted against the Gunners, is pushing for a first start in a midfield that will also include the more renowned face of Paul Pogba, who was given time off to mourn the passing of his father. He's strong guy, strong mentality. "He knows that he needs to play on Sunday because he hasn't played or trained for a long time and he needs these minutes on the pitch, so he plays against Palace".

Marouane Fellaini is having a hamstring injury assessed, while Chris Smalling is set to be fit for Wednesday's final despite a "small problem" keeping him out against Palace.

"I don't know (whether) Wayne (will play) or not". I tried to. I maybe lasted 15, 20 minutes.

Asked if the young players were ready, the Portuguese said: "All together? No".
