How are Man Utd players on loan performing this season so far?
Manchester United has been one of the world’s most recognizable football clubs for decades. Their club logo is worn by millions around the globe, and their roster has featured some of the world’s most adored players.
The team boasts a portfolio of 5-star players, even getting one of these players would feel like hitting Mayfair on Monopoly Megaways. This season Man United has eight players on loan to other clubs, but how are they performing so far?
Although it was predicted that the goalkeeper would stay on to compete for the No. 1 spot with David de Gea, Henderson opted to leave the club for a season.
He’s been on loan to Nottingham Forest in their return to the Premier League, but the club hasn’t had a great season. With Forest sitting towards the bottom of the table and Henderson maintaining only a single clean sheet from eight games, this loan hasn’t been the most fruitful.
The Ivorian centre-back has been on loan to Marseille this season after securing a loan swap three games into the Ligue 1. He’s been in and out of the squad but has appeared for the French team three times this season.
Next, we have Alex Telles. The Brazilian left-back is currently on loan to Sevilla. Although he appeared against Almeria, where he scored an assist, he is in competition with Argentinian international Marcos Acuna for the regular spot. Though he’s spent some games on the bench, he’s appeared six times for the club so far.
The 20-year-old winger is currently on loan to Sunderland, where he recently made his debut appearance. The side suffered a 1-0 defeat against rivals Middlesbrough. Hopefully, the young Ivorian has impressed new boss Tony Mowbray enough to make some first starts in upcoming games.
Tunisian youngster Hannibal Mejbri is on a season-long loan to Birmingham for the foreseeable future. The midfielder made his first appearance for the Blues against Preston North End, where they secured a 1-0 win. Mejbri joins Tahith Chong, who previously joined the team on a permanent basis following a deal with United.
English right-back Ethan Laird is currently representing Queens Park Rangers on the field. Although QPR lost 1-0 to Swansea, a team Laird was previously on loan to, his performance was commended, and he continues to impress.
Next up, we have the young Spanish national, who is on loan to Preston. Fernandez recently made his fourth Championship appearance from the bench. Alvaro performed respectably, assisting his team with several neat crosses, but he’s no doubt eager to make a first start for the team.
Finally, we have goalkeeper Dermot Mee, who is on loan for Altrincham. The Northern Irish player recently appeared for the fourth for the English team, where they, unfortunately, lost 5-1 against Solihull Moors. Hopefully, Mee has a more successful season ahead of him.
These are the eight Manchester United players currently on loan from Man United this season. We’ll be keeping an eye on their future appearances, and we wonder what the future holds for these 8 players full of potential.
