Onto bigger things!”: United’s newest player confirms his Old Trafford move on social media

Manchester United returned to winning ways with a 3-2 triumph over Newcastle on Wednesday. In the short-term, the win over Magpies has kept Man United’s hopes of qualifying for European competition next season alive.

As far as the long-term is concerned, the performance of the Red Devils’ young stars at Old Trafford painted a promising picture for the club’s hierarchy, who have seemingly struck gold with United’s starlets. All three goal-scorers against Newcastle were 21 or younger.

Whether United qualify for the Europa League or not, INEOS understand their transfer spending is going to be heavily trimmed this summer amid the Premier League’s PSR concerns.

However, this may force the club’s hierarchy to adopt a long-term approach and focus on strengthening United by investing in younger talents — be it for the first-team or academy.

It appears the search for such players is already well underway, with United securing the signature of a promising talent ahead of the summer transfer window.

United have completed the signing of Dante Plunkett after the teenager’s successful trial period.

He announced his move to United by posting a photo of himself with a club shirt on Instagram. The caption of his post read: “Onto bigger things!”

The Englishman previously played as a left-back for Aston Villa’s youth sides.

He has already made his debut for the Mancunian giants, having featured for their Under-18 side. Next on the cards for Plunkett is to earn a professional contract at the club.
