Manchester United have fast-tracked an agreement for rising star Shola Shoretire to secure his immediate future to the club.
The 16-year old is already regarded as one of the best ‘No 10s’ in Europe for his age and was a target for elite sides across the continent.
He is still at school yet is expected to play for the U23s this season and could even make an impression on the first team squad before the end of the year.
Manchester United youngster Shola Shoretire is still not old enough for a professional contract
The Newcastle-raised teenager can’t sign a professional contract until he turns 17 next February but is so highly regarded by United that they have moved to put a scholar year in place with the promise of a lucrative first professional deal attached.
Shoretire was at school on Friday before heading to Old Trafford to play a starring role and score in the U18s FA Youth Cup quarter final win against Wigan.
He joined the club as a ten year old and was promoted by head of first team development Nicky Butt to the United academy tour of Austria in 2018 when he was just 14.
He became the youngest player to appear in the UEFA Youth League in December 2018 aged 14 years 314 days when introduced as a substitute in a 2-1 win against Valencia.
