Stats PROVE Manchester United have the best youth academy in the Premier League

Incredible record for United.

Manchester United have had 14 youth academy products make Premier League debuts since the 2010/11 season, showing they’re not just a club that splashes the cash.

The Red Devils were known under Sir Alex Ferguson for nurturing homegrown talent like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, David Beckham and the Neville brothers.

However, they have failed to reproduce that kind of success in more recent years, with only one of these 14 players going on to make 25 appearances or more at the top level, according to stats collected by the Metro.
