Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal admits the kids’ emergence could change transfer policy.
The Red Devils have won 4 successive games in all competitions thanks to academy products like Marcus Rashford, Varela, Borthwick Jackson, Timothy Fosu and a few others.
United head to West Brom on Sunday looking to extend their winning run to a fifth successive match.
“Of course, yes,” he said when asked if their emergence could affect his transfer policy. “Also in January that we took the risk for the left-back position that we didn’t buy.
“We needed a left-back and we inquired about a lot of players. Some have said it now.
“It is always the agent that is doing that because it is interesting Man United is inquiring, but we said, ‘Okay, maybe Borthwick-Jackson and Varela can do the job’.
“There was Spanish interest in Varela and we said no because of that.”
