Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world, even with their recent struggles to ascend to the top of the Premier League they once dominated, and that naturally carries a desire to bring as much talent to Old Trafford as possible at both youth and senior level.

Erik ten Hag is now beginning to bed in his philosophy, and he has a number of new signings to help realise it, with €240 million spent this summer on the likes of Antony, Lisandro Martinez and Casemiro.


The Red Devils have also seen several big names leave over the course of the window, while making others available on temporary moves.

This could have been done to either to simply get certain wage packets off the books, or to aid the development of a younger player.

The likes of Donny van de Beek, Anthony Martial, James Garner and Amad Diallo all spent time out on loan last term, but United haven't made as much use of the mechanisim to trim their squad this time around.

How many players did Man Utd have out on loan?

Between players in the first team and in the reserves/youth sides, Man Utd have eight players out on loan this season.

Where is each Man Utd player on loan?

Dean Henderson - Nottingham Forest

Eric Bailly - Marseille

Alex Telles - Sevilla

Amad Diallo - Sunderland


Hannibal Mejbri - Birmingham

Ethan Laird - Queens Park Rangers

Alvaro Fernandez Preston

Dermot Mee - Altrincham

How are they performing?

The decision to send Dean Henderson out on loan was by far the most contentious at Old Trafford.

The goalkeeper was expected to fight for the No.1 jersey with David de Gea but instead demanded he leave rather than spend another season warming the bench for the Red Devils.

He has been ever-present for Forest in their return to the Premier League in 2022-23 but his side sit 18th in the Premier League with the second-worst defensive record, with Henderson keeping just four clean sheets in 15 games.

Alex Telles began the season on the bench for Sevilla but has since slowly been eased into the La Liga side's starting line-up. Telles has made 13 appearances in the league this season, seven of which have been starts, grabbing two assists. He also played twice for Brazil in the 2022 World Cup.

Eric Bailly was hoping for more first-team football with Marseille to prove his fitness but he has made just two starts in Ligue 1 for the French side. Bailly has featured regularly in the Champions League but has suffered knocks which have limited his league apperances.

Amad Diallo has enjoyed a dramatic improvement in form, having struggled to make an impact at Sunderland in his first few games. The Ivorian made just one start in his first eight games for the Mackems but, having been called out by manager Tony Mowbray for his lack of end product, has scored five goals in seven games since, starting all of them.

Hannibal Mejbri has made 16 appearances for Birmingham, nine of which have been starts, but he has yet to truly impact his new team, only grabbing two assists for his mid-table side.

Ethan Laird and Alvaro Fernandez have both featured on a regular basis for QPR and Preston respectively, with Fernandez even making the Championship Team of the Week recently.

Goalkeeper Dermot Mee has already lost his place to Oliver Byrne after his Altrincham spell got off to a rocky start by conceding four goals in his first two National League games.
