Yesterday, Teden Mengi signed a new contract at Man Utd, with Red Devils fans reacting in their droves on social media.

Well it came out of the blue but Teden Mengi’s future is now secure until 2024. The mega-talented defender, who made his first-team debut in last season’s Europa League, can now focus solely on his football.

Right now, the Mancunian is currently plying his trade for Wayne Rooney’s Derby County. By all accounts, he’s impressing The Rams, despite the fact the club are sitting just above the relegation zone.

Mengi has shown us time-and-time again that despite being only eighteen, he’s too good for U23 level football. He wasn’t going to start matches regularly at first-team level so a loan move was certainly in his best interests.

Well, he’d pop back to Manchester to sign is new, deserved contract. Now, te hard work really starts for the teenage centre-half.

Quick, strong, two-footed, great in the air and decent with the ball at his feet, Mengi has all the attributes to become a top-drawer centre-half.

As anyone who has watched United regularly this season will know, the search is still on to find Harry Maguire’s long-term partner. Maybe, just maybe, that guy is right under their nose in Mengi. I don’t doubt that when he returns to Old Trafford this summer, he’ll be a far better player than he was when he left.

As you’d imagine, United fans would take to Twitter by the masses, full of praise for Mengi as he becomes the latest in a growing line of youngsters to commit their future to the club.
