Manchester United are reportedly considering promoting Nigerian youngster Shola Shoretire to the first team in the coming term because of his outstanding performances in the youth team.
The 16-year-old is currently playing for Manchester United Under 18-team and has been superb with his amazing dribbling styles and goal-scoring sense.
Reports circulating the media suggest that people at Old Trafford believe Shoretire will be Jadon Sancho’s perfect replacement.
United tried all they could to sign Jadon Sancho before the end of the transfer window, but his club Borussia Dortmund refused to do any business with the Red Devils.
Dortmund chiefs were actually asking for the sum of £108m for them to allow the Englishman leave, but Manchester United were not ready to pay such amount.
United went on to sign Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani on the last day of the transfer and he is expected to be leading Manchester United attack alongside Anthony Martial.
The report added that Neil Ryan who is the coach of Manchester United Under 18-side rated Shola Shoretire as one of his best players.
“Good players can enjoy the big stage. Shoretire is a really exciting player.
“He’s evolving and developing, can play a number of different positions, he showed a great maturity I thought.”
Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay both graduated to Manchester United first team from the academy and Shoretire is expected to follow in the footsteps.
United who are currently 16th in Premier League, will face Newcastle after the international break.
