Man United starlet rejects a new deal and leaves the club in search of first team football

While Man United have always been famous for their willingness to get the younger players into the first team, it does look like they are looking to make big money signings instead of using the youngsters ahead of next season.

When you couple that with the fact that the gap between the first team and the youth team is wider than ever, it’s not surprising to see younger players leaving big clubs at a young age in search of regular football.

The latest is Deji Sotona who was clearly highly rated at Old Trafford and had an offer of a new contract on the table, but he’s decided he wants to play first team football and he’s now left the club:

It’s unlikely to affect the first team just now because there was no indication that he was set to break through, but it will be a bad look for the club if he goes on to shine somewhere else.
