With news breaking that Friar Brian is exploring the possibility of bringing in young Scum striker Will Keane, just a month or so after signing young Scum reject Wootton, the tantalising possibility of Leeds United becoming Manchester United's unofficial nursery club is emerging.
Of course, for this arrangement to work, the Manchester giants would need to be convinced that their young kids would start games - and former Everton boss Moyes will remember how the Yorkshire club couldn't find a starting berth for England international Ross Barkley last season - and would also need to be satisfied that Leeds will remain at the right level to develop their promising talent - which is, of course, the Championship.
The mid table position that Leeds presently occupy is, therefore, ideal. With Leeds seemingly going nowhere, Moyes can send his kids across the Pennines to play in games virtually devoid of pressure in half full stadiums. If they develop, Moyes can bring them back and ease them in to the first team; and if they fail to train on, like Wootton, he can offload them to the off Whites.
Despite the supposed rivalry between the teams, this would, in fact, continue a long standing, but unspoken, relationship, as Leeds have been a feeder club of Manchester United ever since 1978 when Jordan and McQueen made the step up to the Lancashire giants; and this arrangement, of course, was cemented when Cantona was allowed to make the same move, thereby opening the door for the Mancs to dominate the English game for the next two decades and more.
Leeds fans might be a little uncomfortable with the idea but if it provides them with the opportunity of seeing Premiership players in the once famous white shirts, they really shouldn't complain.
Just imagine how wonderful it would be, in future years, to watch an England team featuring Manchester United's Keane, and Everton's Barkley and say, "I saw those guys play at Elland Road in a Leeds shirt." And when Keane fires home the goal that wins the Mancs the Champions League, Leeds fans can share the glory, drinking a toast with the guys in red and white scarves whilst proudly announcing, "It was his time at Elland Road that made him the player he is today!"
And better still, there is the possibility that if Keane turns out to be a dud, Leeds might be allowed to buy him for a million or so pounds.
It's the perfect win win situation!
