The Manchester United academy, based across from the first-team building at Carrington, is a proud reminder of the importance placed on the players who have come through the system and gone on to glory in the various eras since its formation.

The demands for those players at the older end of the spectrum remain the same.



While recruitment has been a hot topic at United since the closure of the latest transfer window, at academy level the club has caught the eye this summer, bringing in more than half a dozen players from home and abroad and beating some of Europe's major clubs to their signatures.



"Brexit will change the pool of players that we can recruit from at various stages, so there will undoubtedly be a greater focus on British-based players up until a certain age," he says.

"I think we're still working through what the connotations are and exactly what the details are in regards to the movement of players from outside of this country but absolutely we have to have a robust plan to make sure we have the best players we possibly can have to make sure that we can offer them first-team debuts."

"So we've spent a lot of time planning for it as best we can, but I think if you look at the best Manchester United teams, there's a core of local players complimented by the best talent from outside the local footprint."

"They're intrigued, they want to know and again that's amazing for us to have a fanbase who cares so passionately about what it is we're up to. It's just what we do and it's a habit of some 80 odd years of producing young players and one that we've got to make sure we sustain."
