Another young player is set to sign for Manchester United: Standard Liege full back Marnick Vermijl will wear our shirt from next season. The 18-year-old had trials at Old Trafford and he allegedly impressed Fergie enough to snap him up.

‘They said he was the best right or left back they had seen in years,’ Vemijl’s father, Dirk, told Het Laatste Nieuws.

‘Ferguson told me that Marnick would become a fixture in the Manchester United squad in the following years.’

Easy on the promises, though. Fergie declared, only a few weeks ago, that the Da Silva twins would hold down the full-back spots for a decade. So yeah, I’m glad to see another highly rated youngster arriving but please don’t go overboard just yet.
