Charlie Savage expected to leave Manchester United on loan in January transfer window
Both the club and the player are in agreement that a temporary move away from the Red Devils would be beneficial for the midfielder. At the moment, discussions are being held to find the right club for the 19-year-old.
Savage is attracting interest from the EFL. The Old Trafford side are keen to send him on loan to a League One outfit. However, it remains to be seen if the club receive an acceptable proposal.
The Welsh national has developed in the youth ranks of United. In the previous campaign, the 19-year-old made his debut for the Red Devils, coming on as a substitute in the final minutes of the Champions League group stage fixture against BSC Young Boys at Old Trafford that ended 1-1.
Since then, Savage has not featured for the senior side. However, he was impressive during pre-season under Erik ten Hag. Alongside fellow academy graduate Zidane Iqbal, the Welsh national caught a lot of people’s eyes.
The midfielder played in the two friendlies in Spain against Cadiz and Real Betis during the 2022 World Cup break. But the Dutch manager does not seem to trust the 19-year-old yet to play a competitive first-team match.
United’s current contingent in the middle of the park includes the likes of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen, The two, who signed for the Red Devils in the summer of 2022, have cemented their place in the gaffer’s plans.
Fred, Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek are the three players who have been backups in the engine room this season. However, the Holland international will miss the rest of the campaign due to an injury.

Considering the quality at Ten Hag’s disposal, it does not look like Savage will get any minutes as of now. Therefore, it would be wise for the Old Trafford side to find a team where the 19-year-old is able to gain valuable first-team experience.
