Ryan Giggs has pledged Manchester United will never abandon their quest to keep bringing through young players at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils’ assistant manager has played a major role this season in recommending some of their brightest prospects to boss Louis van Gaal for first-team elevation.
And the former legendary winger has been delighted to see the likes of Marcus Rashford, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Guillermo Varela all go on to thrive.
United are expected to spend big again this summer, although Giggs has assured fans it will not be at the expense of their starlets.
The Welshman said: “I think it will always be part of the club’s philosophy. It’s part of the history (to bring kids through), it’s what sets us apart from other teams.
“Yes, we can bring world-class players in from around the world but we want to have one of our own to be performing on that Old Trafford pitch, whether it’s a centre forward, a winger, a defender… we need players to come through the ranks. That’s a massive part of the United history.”
