Nigerian forward Shola Shoretire has signed his first professional contract with Manchester United after snubbing PSG, Barcelona, Juventus and Bayern Munich.

The 17-year-old winger, who has been with Manchester United since the age of nine, is another product of the club’s outstanding Academy system.

Shoretire who turned 17 last week, has been starring for Manchester United’s U23s and has trained with the first team recently as Red Devils announced the signing of the club official website.

Shoretire made history in 2018 when he became the youngest United player ever to appear in the UEFA Youth League, aged just 14.

The Nigerian youngster has been an important part of Neil Wood’s side this season, featuring 13 times in Premier League 2, scoring five goals and registering three assists.
