Manchester United have snapped up five players from Huddersfield’s now defunct under-16 and under-19 squads, after the club decided to close them down, reports the Daily Mail.

The Terriers had not seen any sort of success or growth with the u-16’s and u-19’s, and as a result, they opted to save the money that was being spent on sustaining those systems.

£500,00-a-year is the estimated figure that the Premier League club is set to save following this move, and they have insisted that the money will be reinvested into the running costs of the youth squads that they have decided to continue running – the under-18’s and under-23’s.

The move has left a number of young talents without a football club, but they weren’t short of options, and were given the freedom to sign for another club without any compensation being due.

Manchester United were the quickest to pounce on the situation, offering trial periods to 15 players who were affected by the situation.

A number of other Premier League clubs, viz. Manchester City, Liverpool and Everton, were also keen on bringing in some of the clubless players.

However, their sluggish approach saw them having to do with the leftovers, after the Red Devils organised a number of trials and training games and eventually completed the signing of five top youngsters.
