Man United believe James Garner is a player who can make a first-team impact in future.

For any of our longtime followers, you’ll know we’ve been huge fans of James Garner for at least three years.

Time and time again summer rolls around and we’re left disappointed when Garner is given a minimal role in pre-season.

The Englishman has spent the last couple of years away from Manchester United on loan. This time around, Garner has been with Nottingham Forest – where he’s massively impressing.

Surely it’s only a matter of time before he gets his chance? Well, it looks as though our prayers are finally about to be answered!

The story comes from Mike McGrath in his transfer notebook segment for The Telegraph. Apparently, United have earmarked the 21-year-old as a player with future first-team potential.

On top of that, Garner is set to be given the chance to impress United’s new manager during pre-season over the summer, with Garner to be assessed at close quarters before a final decision about his short-term future is made.

My personal opinion is that it’s now or never for Garner. There’s only so much a loan move away from United can benefit a player. If Garner finds himself in the Championship again next season, it just feels like a bit of a waste.

I look at Paul Pogba’s exit, coupled with an ageing Nemanja Matic, as the perfect opportunity to integrate Garner into the first-team. Nobody is expecting him to start every week and play at a high level. Rather, dip in and out of the team every now and then, with a view to the Birkenhead-born midfielder to be an integral part of our midfield in future.

I’m just happy he’s finally going to start getting the recognition he deserves from the coaches at United.
