Man Utd's Tahith Chong is starring on loan at Birmingham City

Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world and naturally with that comes a desire to bring as much talent to Old Trafford as possible both at youth and senior level.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer currently has a first team squad packed with talent, especially after the acquisitions of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

The Red Devils have thus taken the opportunity to send a number of players out on loan who would not have received game time in 2021/22 had they stayed.

This could be either to simply get rid of wages off the books, or to aid the development of a younger player.

Daniel James has left the club on a permanent basis for Leeds United, but all of the other departures this summer, apart from contract expiries, have been on loan.

How many players do Man Utd have out on loan?

Between players in the first team and in the reserves/youth sides, Man Utd currently have 13 players out on loan.

How are they performing?

Andreas Pereira was on loan at Lazio last season is not part of the club's plans again this campaign as he has returned to Brazil with Flamengo until June.

He couldn't have hoped for a better debut, either, as he came off the bench for a nine-minute cameo in a 4-0 victory against Santos in which he got on the scoresheet in his short time on the pitch. He has since played three more times for the club.

In January of 2021, Facundo Pellistri went on loan to Alaves and has returned to the Spanish side for the full of the season in 2021/22. So far, he has made 16 appearances for the club, and failed to score.

Highly-rated midfielder James Garner spent last season on loan at Watford and, after that was terminated, Nottingham Forest for the last six months.

He has again returned to Forest for the new campaign after signing a new contract with Man Utd. He is already a popular figure with his loan side as in February he scored against arch rivals, Derby. This season he has appeared five times in all competitions.

Axel Tuanzebe has put in some impressive performances for the Man Utd first team, no more so than away against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. He is clearly not trusted by Solskjaer, though, and campaigned to leave for more game time after the arrival of Varane. He has made six appearances for Aston Villa so far in his loan.

Brandon Williams was never going to get much game time at left-back, with Luke Shaw and Alex Telles available in that spot, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka plays basically every game at right-back. His debut on loan at Norwich came in a superb 6-0 victory against Bournemouth in the League Cup. He has made three Premier League appearances for the Canaries and lost all three.

Wonderkid Tahith Chong is currently on loan at Birmingham and recently recorded two assists in a 5-0 victory over Birmingham. He has made seven appearances so far for the team.
