David De Gea: These Man United youngsters are the future

David De Gea has been thrilled to see some of the younger players make an impression at Manchester United

David De Gea believes that Manchester United’s young players such as Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Guillermo Varela represent the future of the club.

The duo have made their full debuts for Louis van Gaal’s men this season following the Red Devils’ latest spate of injuries.

The United boss has also been calling on the likes of Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira more regularly this term as the Dutchman gives United fans a glimpse of some of the young talent coming through at Old Trafford.

And Red Devils goalkeeper De Gea has stressed the importance of giving the youngsters a chance to impress – because they are likely to develop into key players in the seasons to come.

Asked about the likes of Borthwick-Jackson, Varela, Lingard and Pereira, De Gea told Inside United: “I think we have a very young side and I think that the youngsters who are coming up through the youth ranks are fitting in really well.
