Teden Mengi is set to head out on loan again in the 2021/22 campaign.

Manchester United’s current squads, at senior and youth level, are overflowing with talent. Credit to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and those coaches who are working under him, as they’ve several promising youngsters on their books.

Amongst the hottest prospects at the AON Training Complex is Teden Mengi. The youngster would make his debut back in 2020 against LASK in the Europa League, though last season, we wouldn’t see him take to the field at all.

In February, Mengi would head to Derby County on loan in order to get some regular football under his belt, managed by none other than Wayne Rooney. The Rams would be impressed with the young centre-half. So-much-so, they want him back for 2021/22.

Ask and they shall receive. According to the Manchester Evening News, the talented 19-year-old is set to seal a loan move back to Derby, after struggling to make his first-team breakthrough over the last twelve months.

At this point, it seems as though Solskjaer isn’t ready to put massive trust in Mengi to play regularly at United. Hence, another loan move is the best thing for Mengi’s overall development.

Let’s be honest, Harry Maguire will always start when fit and you’d hope that United will be able to acquire a new partner for the Englishman this summer. Then, upon Mengi’s return to Old Trafford next year, Solskjaer will have a better idea in regards to whether the youngster is ready to be fully integrated into the first-team squad.

Under Rooney, the centre-half is definitely in good hands while playing Championship football will definitely teach Mengi an awful lot about being a professional footballer.

Good luck, Teden.
