Manchester United 'agree lucrative professional contract with teenager'

Manchester United agree a 'lucrative' first professional deal with teenage attacker Shola Shoretire, according to a report.

Manchester United have reportedly agreed a 'lucrative' first professional deal with Shola Shoretire.

The 17-year-old, who is capable of operating in a number of different forward positions, has scored twice and registered two assists in 12 Premier League 2 appearances for United's Under-23s this term.

According to the Daily Mail, Shoretire's performances at youth level had attracted attention from the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus.

However, the report claims that the Red Devils have now agreed a professional contract with the teenager, who has already trained with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first-team squad.

The former England Under-16s international made his UEFA Youth League debut at the age of 14 and has been tipped to make the breakthrough into the first team before the end of the campaign.

Shoretire played the full 90 minutes as United's Under-23s side beat Liverpool Under-23s 6-3 last weekend.
