Manchester United Release Largie Ramazani and Eight Other Academy Players

Largie Ramazani to Move On

With 13 Premier League 2 appearances and nine goals, Largie Ramazani will be moving on despite the offer of a new contract.

Ramazani is a fan favourite but the skilful player requested higher wages and his demand has not been met, a club official told Manchester Evening News. He is expected to join a second division Spanish side.

Other Players to Be Released

After a recent injury stunting his progress, Demetri Mitchell will also be leaving the team. He may have some luck with Championship sides next season.

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Alex Fojticek, Ethan Hamiton, Kieran O’Hara and George Tanner will all be leaving after seasons out on loan.

Aidan Barlow and Dion McGee will be leaving United‘s Under 23s side.

The club states it wants to support outgoing players. The majority have been offered financial support until the end of August. Additionally, a ‘care package’ which includes allowing them to keep using the training facilities through pre-season.

No players aged under 19 have been released. This is in part due to the worry about releasing these young players during this coronavirus crisis.

Angel Gomes Deal Still on Table

Angel Gomes will soon be out of contract, but a new deal is still on the table. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that he had no update on the situation as of two days ago.

“For me, I’ve not spoken to anyone last night or this morning,” Solskjaer said. “So the paperwork and the admin, the meetings that are going on, I can’t update on that.”
