Sir Alex Ferguson has mapped out his plan for Manchester United's youth stars, with the Scot admitting that he will send some out on loan to get more first team experience next season.

Ferguson noted after the Red Devils were knocked out of the Carling Cup to Crystal Palace that the club's youth system wasn't quite up to scratch in preparing players for the senior side, and since then speculation has surrounded the likes of Micheal and Will Keane, along with Davide Petrucci, will be going out on loan.

And Ferguson has now revealed that he will definitely consider the youngsters spending a season away from United, as he aims to create yet another generation of title winners.

"There will be a few [going out on loan]," Sir Alex told the new issue of Inside United. "We'll always do that. We've had eight or nine out this season, including Robbie Brady, Scott Wootton, Joshua King and John Cofie. I went to see Oliver Norwood at Coventry recently and he was a star for them.

Sir Alex Ferguson says Manchester United's young players will be great in the future.

"Some of them will definitely go out again next season: potentially the two Keane brothers, Tom Thorpe, Davide Petrucci, Zeki Fryers and Matty James, who was out for a year-and-a-half through injury but is back now and playing well for the Reserves. Marnick Vermijl will probably stay here for another year yet."

United are currently fighting to keep Paul Pogba on board, with the 19 year old stalling on signing a contract with the club as he fields interest from the likes of Juventus.

But with Pogba aside, Ferguson believes that United have some brilliant young players coming through the ranks, who can be the future of the club.

"We have some terrific young players here: [Jesse] Lingard, [Larnell] Cole, the two Keanes, Petrucci, Fryers, Vermijl, [Ryan] Tunnicliffe, Thorpe," he explained.

"Of the team who won the Youth Cup last year, seven have been in the first team at different points this season: [Paul] Pogba, [Ravel] Morrison, Fryers, Cole, Lingard and the Keanes.

"It's a good group of players. The present youth team lost in the semi-finals of the cup but they had only three second-year boys, whereas [their opponents] Chelsea were all second-year scholars.

"They were a bigger team, much stronger. We had eight first-year boys and, for example, our left centre-back, Nicolas Ioannou, is only 16. So they didn't let themselves down."

The likes of Michael and Will Keane and Ezekiel Fryers will be able to represent England, and will make the United squad dominated by possible Three Lions candidates if the trio are able to make it into the first team.

Ferguson has said in recent interviews that he believes he has two or three years left of managing the club, and the United legend will no doubt be hoping to build a team that is ready to carry on his legacy before he does leave the fold.
