Van Gaal wants youth to step up

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal wants the club's youth team players to prove they can make the grade by giving them a chance on the pre-season tour to the United States.

While the Dutchman is trying to bring in more signings in addition to that of Memphis Depay, who has joined from PSV Eindhoven, he wants those further down the ranks at Old Trafford to push for contention to join his squad.

"I shall take a lot of youngsters with us to the USA," said van Gaal, whose team will play four matches against Club America, San Jose Earthquakes, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain in next month's International Champions Cup.

"They have the chance to show themselves and then we shall wait and observe how they can develop.

"You get your chances always, especially in pre-season and, when you grab that chance, you have maybe the possibility to join us next season."

United's Under-21s won their league last season and while Van Gaal recognised that success he believes a greater achievement will be to have at least one player from the youth ranks regularly make it to first-team level.

"A championship for the second team is fantastic but I think one player every year in the first-team as a line-up player is much more important," he told manutd.com.
