This weekend, Man United will play again in the Premier League, and the team for Erik ten Hag’s campaign has been announced.
For the next Premier League season, Manchester United has filed their official 25-man squad.
Erik ten Hag has already revealed which players will be available for selection. After the summer transfer market closed, Premier League sides were forced to submit a revised 25-man squad list this week.
Mason Mount, Andre Onana, Altay Bayindir, Sergio Reguilon, and Sofyan Amrabat, five of the club’s newest recruits, have been named to the squad; Rasmus Hojlund, however, has been left out due to his advanced age.
Premier League regulations specify Hojlund is not on the list since players under the age of 21 are not required to be registered with the team.
Instead, teams are have to provide a limitless list of U21 players who will be allowed to participate even if their names are not on the roster.
The regulations state that each squad may have a maximum of 17 players who do not meet the “homegrown player” standard.
A “homegrown player” is someone who has been registered with a Football Association club for three full seasons, or 36 months, before their 21st birthday, regardless of nationality or age.
With the recent additions of Mount and Evans, United has named nine homegrown players in the lineup.
