Fans are eagerly anticipating the opening of the transfer window in mid-June, hoping that INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe will make a strong impression. However, financial constraints mean the club might need to sell players before making any marquee signings.

With Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial leaving at the end of their contracts, some funds will be available, but big sales like those of Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood might also be necessary.

According to The Telegraph, if Ratcliffe opts for a frugal approach, United will focus on promoting youth players. One promising candidate for the senior squad is Toby Collyer. The Telegraph reports that the club sees the 20-year-old midfielder as having “first-team potential” for the 2024/25 season.

Collyer joined United from Brighton in 2022 and has previously earned caps with England’s U17 team. Although he has yet to make his professional debut, it seems likely to happen soon.

As a defensive midfielder, Collyer could fill a critical gap in United’s current squad. With Casemiro reportedly having issues with the manager and being the only established defensive midfielder, there’s an opportunity for Collyer to step up.

It seems likely that Collyer will be involved in the pre-season tour to the United States in July. This could be a crucial chance for him to prove his value to the team.

Ultimately, it’s up to Collyer to seize this opportunity. Erik ten Hag has made it clear that young players must earn their place through performance, as exemplified by Zidane Iqbal.
