What Manchester United would do to have a player like David Beckham back among their ranks – and one youngster is trying to follow in his footsteps.

Erik ten Hag has had a difficult campaign this season, coming under immense pressure after a series of poor results as well as contending with an injury crisis.

The latest players to spend a stint on the sidelines include Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen, adding to a list that includes Luke Shaw, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro, Jonny Evans and Tyrell Malacia.

It means that the United boss might have to trust his youngsters more – and one could be ready to make the step up.

While there have already been appearances for Hannibal Mejbri and Dan Gore, it’s Isak Hansen-Aaroen who could be next to make a stamp on the first-team squad.

The Norwegian has drawn comparisons to compatriot Martin Odegaard for his silky skills and artistic creativity, even stunning Ten Hag in pre-season.

Footage of the 19-year-old playing this season has gone viral among United fans, including a display against Copenhagen’s Under-19s in the UEFA Youth League.

One fan responded: “Isak Hansen Aaroen he ain’t at Zidane level but he’s the next Odegaard.”

Another wrote: “We have somebody like Odegaard at united and he isn’t getting any minutes. Isak Hansen Aaroen is a beautiful player.”

A third put: “Isak Hansen-Aaroen, Norway’s biggest talent since Odegaard and Haaland.”
