Although their success on the pitch has become more scarce since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, youth continues to get a chance at Old Trafford.
In fact, an academy graduate has been included in every Manchester United line-up since 1937, a run stretching back 84 years and over 4,000 matches.
The 41 youngsters given their debuts during the 2010s have gone on to embark on careers with varying levels of success, with the group of players including a World Cup winner and players now plying their trade in League Two.
Daily Star Sport has a breakdown of where all 41 players are now.
A member of United's 2011 FA Youth Cup winning side, Morrison was highly rated as a teenager as he came through the ranks at Old Trafford.
Having made his senior debut in League Cup win over Wolves in October 2010, Morrison made just two more appearances for the club before being sold to West Ham United in January 2012.
Hampered by off-field and attitude problems, Morrison has since gone on to play in Italy, Mexico, Sweden and the Netherlands.
Now 28, the Jamaica international joined Derby County in the summer and has one goal and one assist in eight appearances this season.

Left-back Fryers also made his United debut in the League Cup as he appeared in a win over Leeds United in September 2011.
A serious knee injury stunted his development and he left United for Standard Liege in the summer of 2012 before going on to play for Tottenham Hotspur, Crystal Palace, Barnsley and Swindon Town.
Despite being 29, Fryers has made just 127 senior career appearances with injury issues continuing to trouble him.
He recently joined National League side Stockport County on a free transfer after two years at Swindon.
Cole also made his United debut in that cup tie against Leeds, having been a prolific scorer for the club at every youth age group.
This would be his only United appearance, however, and he left Old Trafford for Fulham in 2014 but only ever played once for the Cottagers.
Since leaving Fulham in 2017, he has played for Tranmere Rovers, FC United of Manchester and Radcliffe while enduring long periods without a club.
At present, he is a free agent having left Radcliffe in October 2020.
Arguably the most successful player on this list, Pogba initially made his debut as a substitute in that win over Leeds.
After seven appearances, Pogba joined Italian giants Juventus on a free transfer before returning to United for £89million in 2016 after winning four Serie A titles.
Pogba also won the World Cup with France in 2018 and remains a United player to this day, having now made over 200 appearances for the Red Devils across his two spells with the club.
Central defender Keane made his debut in the League Cup against Aldershot in October 2011 before making a further four appearances for the club.

He has gone on to make 192 Premier League appearances and has also won 12 caps for England, scoring one goal.
Michael's twin brother Will was loaned out four times after making his debut in a loss to Blackburn Rovers in December 2011.
Will was unstoppable in front of goal for United at under-23 level as he scored 35 times in 58 matches, but made just three first team appearances for the club.
He left United permanently in 2016 as he joined Hull City for £1million and has since played for Ipswich Town and Wigan Athletic.
Striker Keane is now in his second season with Wigan and has scored 15 goals in 47 appearances for the Latics.
