Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has quickly been impressed by the club's youngsters.

Ten Hag has taken a first week of preseason training at Carrington.

Zidane Iqbal, 19, is understood to have already impressed him.

Argentina U20 winger Alejandro Garnacho, 18, who made two sub appearances last season, has also impressed, along with midfielder Hannibal Mejbri, 19.

A United source told The Sun: “A lot of the younger players have been in the training sessions, too.

"He has been impressed with Ibqal and wonders why he has not featured more.

“Ten Hag is trying to tell the senior players that their positions are up for grabs, too.

“If they work hard, the players willing to carry out his instructions will take the first-team spots.

“Everyone has stepped up their game and it's creating healthy competition."
