February may just seem like any other ordinary month on the calendar for many, but it just happens to have produced some of the most iconic footballers of the modern era. Manchester United are showing signs of being an emerging force again given their impressive run since the 2022 World Cup. Some of their big name players will turn a year older this month, and so, let's take a look at them in this article;

1- Casemiro 

The Brazilian has been a great addition for Manchester United since joining from Real Madrid in the summer. His ability to break up play, hold up opponents and delay their progress, protect the centre of the pitch, stop counter-attacks, make tactical fouls, and win the ball back have all made a huge difference for United this term. Today, he turns 31 years of age and the club wished him a Happy Birthday on their official Facebook page. 

2- Antony Santos

Today is for Casemiro, tomorrow's for Antony Santos. The starlet who signed from Ajax last summer in a deal that made him the club's second most expensive signing will turn 23 years of age on February 24th. The Brazilian has recorded four goals and multiple assists since switching to Old Trafford this season. He is expected to be named in United's squad for their crunch Second leg Europa League clash with Barcelona following his return from a foot injury.

3- Christian Eriksen
