3 Manchester United players will join. Three former Manchester United youth players recently left the Premier League powerhouses to establish themselves at La Liga team Almeria. UD Almeria won La Liga 2 for the first time in their history last year, their eighth season overall playing in the highest division of Spanish football.
Three former Manchester United starlets are currently playing for the Andalusian club, which is currently ranked 13th in La Liga. Largie Ramazani was the first Carrington alumnus to transfer from Old Trafford to the Power Horse Stadium and has since established himself as an important member of the Almerienistas.
All three players turned down new contracts from the Red Devils in favor of joining Almeria, which has the support of Turki Al-Sheikh, a Saudi consultant to the Royal Court. Largie Ramazani claimed in his reflections on his decision to leave Manchester United and sign with Almeria that his first-team possibilities there were restricted, which led him to choose a transfer to Spain.
Ramazani said, as reported by the Manchester Evening News: “I had a successful season with the second team and was almost at the end of my contract. The reserves were permitted to travel to Astana in almost half. Even allowed to join was me. I did practice a few times, but the senior team would only let me play then. Did they choose that strategy because I had a strong season and could benefit the team? Or was it that they wished to get my contract extended?”
Added him: “It’s like a dream to make your United debut, and Jesse Lingard, Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba, and Scott McTominay all provided valuable guidance for young players. I was aware that if I joined, they would loan me out, so that didn’t persuade me. Marcus Rashford, Daniel James, and Tahith Chong were in front of me. What benefit did it serve to use the reserves for another season? I, therefore, desired to try elsewhere.”
