United give Schlupp trial but lose Fletcher

Manchester United have taken the young and talented Jeff Schlupp on trial where his team may be signing him for a permanent deal. However, fresh doubts were cast over the amazing career of United’s midfielder Darren Fletcher after he got ruled out for the season’s following surgery to recovery from the ulcerative colitis condition he has.

The 28-year-old has only made two substitute appearances ever since his last start on December 1, yet the club says the operation was completely a “planned procedure” to allow him to resolve from the long-term problem.

Schlupp, 20, has thoroughly been training at the Carrington along with the approval of the parents club, who have such a close relationship with the United and have even taken players on loans fresh from Premier League club. The young talented Michael Keane, a United defender, has recently prolonged his loan from Leicester, while forward Jesse Lingard, who’s another United player, has returned from his loan spell there.

Schlupp has relatively been perceived as inexperienced even during the Championship football and hasn’t played in any first teams since November. He’s a striker that can operate with his left and has even played games at his left-back for a club. He accidentally broke into a side last season where he played on loan in the Brentford area in 2010-2011 seasons.

A protege of Leicester academy, Schlupp has been made such an immediate impact the moment when he broke through to the first team in the beginning of last season. He scored a hat-trick right on his debut away from Rotherham United at the League Cup. Schlupp even played quite regularly last season despite of his injuries.
He currently is a senior at the Ghana international where his one cap came in of November last year. Before that, he played at the junior international football tournament for Germany. Schlupp was born in the Hamburg area before he moved to England as quite a youngster. He then underwent knee surgery during the last season, but fortunately, the club gave him a brand new contract that will last until the year of 2015.

There has been many players developed in United that have gone to the Leicester during the recent seasons. This club also currently has three among their first-team squad that includes defender Ritchie De-Laet as well as midfielders Matty James and Danny Drinkwater.

Meanwhile, United was saying in a recent statement that their decision for Fletcher’s current operation to resolve his ulcerative colitus, that has hampered his career since March of 2011, was quite taken “at a optimal time where he achieved a great period of superior general health, where it was illustrated from the fact on how Darren was trained with this team regularly during this season and was available for selection his right-up from the operation.”

The statement even added: “We really look forward to his returning next season where all of his problems will already be firmly behind him.” Fortunately, tickets to all Manchester United matches can be bought in advanced for all the United diehard fans. Click here for your tickets.
