Manchester United manager David Moyes is ready to hand Adnan Januzaj and Jesse Lingard roles in his first team squad this season.
The United hopefuls have featured in all three of United's pre-season friendlies during their tour of the Far East and Australia occasionally alongside new arrival Wilfried Zaha in a youthful attacking trio.
Moyes has already confirmed the former Crystal Palace star will remain with the first team squad next season, and has indicated that he could decide not to send Januzaj and Lingard out on loan and allow them to continue their development at Old Trafford.
"Both have done well and adapted well and made contributions to the team," Moyes told Manchester United's official website. "It's tradition at United to try and get young players into the team and both have come through the system. Hopefully we can get both some playing time next season but both need to keep their levels up and keep making an impact in training and games."
Lingard, who spent a two-month period on loan with Leicester City last season has taken his pre-season chances with aplomb, netting a brace in United's 5-1 victory over A League All Stars before adding a third in the club's defeat to Yokohama F Marinos on Tuesday.
Januzaj, who was highlighted for particular praise by Moyes' predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson last season, has also made an impression. The 18-year-old Belgian is yet to make a first team appearance for United, having been named on the bench for United's season-ending thrilling 5-5 draw with West Bromwich Albion, but is eager to have an immediate impact on the first team
"My target for the season is to try and get some games for the first team," he said. "I have not spoken to the manager about it yet but I would prefer to do that rather than go out on loan.
"That is what I came here for. Everyone wants to play for Manchester United."
United will conclude their tour of the Far East, which has yielded two losses and a win, against Cerezo Osaka on Friday and clash with Hong Kong based Kitchee on Monday.
The Premier League champions will then welcome Sevilla to Old Trafford for Rio Ferdinand's testimonial, before the 2013/14 campaign officially gets underway in the Community Shield against Wigan Athletic on 11 August.
