Meet 16-year-old Nigerian wonderkid Shola Shoretire, who just signed with Manchester United


Meet 16-year-old Nigerian striker and wonderkid, Shola Shoretire, who recently signed a deal with English club, Manchester United.

The young striker is eligible to represent Nigeria and England, just scholarship forms with Manchester United until next year when he turns to a professional Man United player, rejecting the advances of many European clubs that wanted his signature.

Shola Shoretire was fully promoted to United’s U18 team before the beginning of this season and has appeared in 12 matches in the U18 Premier League.

On December 12, 2018, Shola became the youngest Manchester United player in history to feature in the UEFA Youth League and Cup game aged 14 years and 314 days after coming on as a substitute against Valencia U19s team.

After the win over Wigan on Friday where Shola scored for the Under 18 team after spending the day at school studying for his GCSEs.
