20-year-old talented star tells Erik Ten Hag he is “fully ready” for Manchester United responsibilities

Alvaro Fernandez is hoping to avoid a loan move and remain at Manchester United. After displaying promising signs during pre-season, Alvaro Fernandez (20) is confident and keen to make his impact in Manchester United’s first squad.The young player insists that he is well equipped and eager to capitalize on the opportunity to make the club.

Following two outstanding performances in triumphs against Leeds and Lyon, the teenage full-back faced competition for his starting spot when Luke Shaw returned for the US tour.As a result, the 20-year-old was forced to play with his younger teammates in Wrexham’s 3-1 defeat. He has now returned to the senior squad and is preparing for the next friendly encounter against Borussia Dortmund at the Allegiant Stadium.

During the previous season, the Spaniard gained valuable experience on loan at Preston North End, featuring in an impressive 39 Championship matches and contributing four assists.Despite Shaw and Tyrell Malacia currently holding higher positions in the left-back pecking order, there have been speculations about Fernandez going on another loan spell.

However, the determined defender remains unfazed and admits that he is prepared to embrace any opportunity that comes his way. As quoted by the club’s official website, he said:

“We start [pre-season] three weeks ago. Let’s see what happens. I feel very good with my team-mates, I’m just ready to go.”

The No.42 is roaring to be a part of Erik ten Hag’s plans for the upcoming campaign. The youngster rightly deserved to be a part of the squad due to his most recent progress.The fans firmly believe that he possesses all the necessary attributes to develop into an exceptional full-back at the highest level. Moving from the Championship to the Premier League, especially when returning to a club like United, is a massive leap.

Even players like Amad, who had a successful season in the second tier, cannot be assured of their place in Ten Hag’s plans for the upcoming season.The transition to a higher level of competition and the expectations at a club of United’s stature makes it a challenging task for any young player.A little more than a week ago, there were concerns that Fernandez’s chances to impress the Dutch boss would diminish after the Lyon match.Several key players from United rejoined pre-season training last weekend, including left-backs Shaw and Malacia. This raised doubts about Fernandez’s opportunities to make an impact on the team.However, the absence of Malacia due to injury presents a potential window of opportunity for the full-back at Man United. While he was likely to be included in the squad, the Dutch defender’s absence allows him to earn more playing time.

While some may believe that another loan move would be beneficial for his development, Fernandez now has the chance to prove otherwise.He can seize this opportunity to show his versatility and potential value to the team in various positions and earn a significant role in the squad for the upcoming season.
