MANCHESTER UNITED will send young striker Joe Hugill out on loan again next season.
And it’s put old club Sunderland on alert.
Joe Hugill could be set to leave Man Utd for a loan return to SunderlandGetty
And he is currently on loan at Altrincham while still turning out for the Red Devils’ U21s, scoring nine goals in as many matches.
But United think Hugill will develop even further so are looking for the right home.
And Sunderland could take their youth star back this summer.
Hugill isn’t the only United kid on loan at Altrincham.
Midfielder Maxi Oyedele joined them in January too.
And defender Sonny Aljofree made it a hat-trick of winter signings.
But it’s Hugill who the Red Devils are pinning their hopes on.
The 6ft 2in hitman has already been compared to England captain Harry Kane.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a huge fan of Hugill during his time at Old Trafford.
And Erik ten Hag could eventually turn to him for another option up top.
