Gary Pallister believes Alejandro Garnacho, James Garner and Hannibal Mejbri are all capable of breaking into Erik ten Hag’s side next season.
“He is at the right age and he is now doing it at international level,” Pallister said of Garnacho, speaking to Metro.co.uk on behalf of Bookies Bonuses.
“He is certainly making a point for himself, you’ve also got James Garner back from his spell at Nottingham Forest, I’m sure he is the same boat.
“We’ve also got Hannibal Mejrbri, there are big expectations for him.
“You would like to think these guys can push themselves into the reckoning.
“One of the first things Sir Alex [Ferguson] said when he first arrived was ‘you are all going to get a chance, you are going to have to prove to me that you are worthy of a start or a place in the squad.’
“These guys will buoyed by what they did last season.
“Garner playing a role in a promotion-winning side, Hannibal making his debut, Garnacho scoring the FA Youth Cup-winning goal now playing for Argentina.
“They are making progress and they are giving Ten Hag options. They will be knocking on that door.
“The squad needs hunger to be successful. You couldn’t say that about the team last season, there were so many abject performances when the heads went down and there was no real fight.
“You just wonder how it manifested itself after the season they had before when they finished second.
“There has got to be reasons for that and its down to Erik Ten Hag to find out why it happened.”
Garner player a key role on loan at Nottingham Forest last season as they gained promotion to the Premier League.
Mejbri made two Premier League appearances for Manchester United last season.
17-year-old forward Garnacho got his Manchester United debut last season and also played a key role as Manchester United won the FA Youth Cup last season.
