Championship and League One sides are exploring a loan for Man United star Charlie Savage

They are keen on taking Savage, who made his debut for United in a Champions League clash with Young Boys last term, on a season-long loan and are ready to step in should the youngster and his club decide that a spell away from Old Trafford would aid his development.

Savage, who impressed against Liverpool and Melbourne Victory while United were in Australia, is highly rated at United. 

Former players Andy Cole, Bryan Robson and Paul Scholes have all spoken highly of the player who has come through the club’s youth set up.

Should Savage remain at Old Trafford he may find opportunities limited. 

However, should he have a successful loan spell he would return with a strong argument to force himself into the first-team picture.

If United finally manage to secure the signing of Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona, that may well have an impact on the decision-making of the local youngster, who does have time on his side having just turned 19.
