Ralf Rangnick thinks it makes sense for Erik ten Hag to give some Manchester United youngsters a chance to shine in the first team in the pre-season.

Ten Hag will take over at Rangnick after the end of the season, with the Dutchman expected at Selhurst Park to watch the team play their last game of the season against Crystal Palace.

The 52-year-old will then meet with the players on Monday before the squad is expected to be overhauled this summer.

One of the positive aspects of an otherwise dismal campaign has been glimmers of hope from United Academy graduates like Alejandro Garnacho and Hannibal Mejbri, who have made cameos for the senior team this season.

When asked if some of the youngsters he brought are ready or need further development, Rangnick said: “Not all of them. But there may be one or two or even three where it makes sense to have them preseason so they can show Erik if they are ready to play.

“On the other hand, for an 18/19-year-old who’s here and not playing or not getting enough playing time, going on loan can also make sense [James] Garner at Nottingham Forest or like some other players at other clubs.

“This could also be an option and although there are some players, Hannibal and of course [Alejandro] Garnacho have already made their debuts, playing time is also at stake and they need to play at the highest possible level on a regular basis.

“It’s not just about training at the highest level, like they do here, but they have to play at that level too.”

Mejbri was praised by United legend Gary Neville after a spirited substitute in the 4-0 defeat by Liverpool earlier this year.

He said: “To be fair, at least the boy is showing a bit. Honestly, it takes a little kid to come along and show the others how to sprint to the ball and set a challenge.

“I’m really proud of him. Perhaps he doesn’t like the idea of ​​Liverpool players walking around him. I wish the others were the same.”
