Manchester United have seen some departures this summer, but to date, they have all been permanent ones. Erik ten Hag has given plenty of minutes to youth this pre-season for Manchester United. It’s allowed the likes of Facundo Pellistri and Kobbie Mainoo to earn high praise from United fans and showcase they could play a part this season for the senior squad.

There will be other United youngsters that will have to go out and loan to get important experience before hopefully returning better players. One of those players who may have a future at Manchester United is Alvaro Fernandez. The Spanish fullback has gotten minutes this pre-season, with three starts with the senior side. Obviously, there’s not a lot to take from some friendlies, especially for Manchester United, who did plenty of heavy rotation. Alvaro should be in line for yet another loan, with suitors now being identified.

Burnley wants Manchester United’s Alvaro Fernandez on loan

Daily Mail is reporting that Vincent Kompany would like to loan Alvaro Fernandez for the season. Burnley are still looking to replace Ian Maatsen, who was on loan with the Clarets last season from Chelsea. Maatsen was a very important player during Burnley’s Championship promotion, but he looks to be set to stay with Chelsea. To survive relegation, it will be important for Burnley to solidify their backline.

Burnley will have tons of scouting done on Alvaro Fernandez. The 20-year-old spent last season on loan at Championship side Preston North End. Fernandez started a bit over half of Preston’s league matches, out on the left flank. He racked up four assists across 39 Championship matches. Alvaro Fernandez joined Manchester United’s academy in 2020 from Real Madrid’s youth setup.

As The Top Flight has covered, Burnley is also looking to finalize a deal for Ajax’s Mohamed Daramy in the coming days.
