The 19-year-old has regularly featured as a centre-back so far this season, but moved over to the right during the FA Cup replay victory over Cambridge United earlier this week. He helped inspire a comfortable 3-0 win over the competition’s minnows, and saw his side safely into the next round.
Van Gaal said: “Maybe he shall be the right full-back of Manchester United for the next 10 years, you never know. He has the chance.”
“He has done it already in the second team [Under-21s] and has done it now at a higher level in the first-team. It is not only Paddy McNair who has impressed with his development, as I have given a lot of chances to younger players.
“But Paddy McNair has developed himself very well, not only as a central defender but now we are giving him the chance to develop as a full-back and he did it very well.”
