Meet The 16-Year-Old Sensation Manchester United Think Is "The Next Jadon Sancho"

Meet The 16-Year-Old Sensation Manchester United Think Is "The Next Jadon Sancho"

Manchester United chiefs think 16-year-old sensation Shola Shoretire is good enough to be the "next Jadon Sancho" following a failed summer transfer.

United were linked with the Borussia Dortmund winger all summer but failed to meet the £108 million asking price.

While they did seal deals for Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri, another winger is plying his trade in the youth team right now.

The Sun have claimed Shoretire is so highly rated by those involved in United's youth setup, he could emulate the success of Sancho.


With a sharp turn of pace and sensational talent on the ball, it's easy to see why the youngster is raved about.

"Good players can enjoy the big stage. [Shoretire] is a really exciting player," United U18s coach Neil Ryan explained.

"We want to keep them humble, hard-working," he continued.

"When you see the professionalism of the likes of Marcus Rashford, he's the shining example. Scott McTominay, so on. These boys are products of the academy and the staff who work with them. They are our examples.

"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."

Shoretire made history when he played in the UEFA Youth League at 14 years and 314 days old.

For context, Shoretire came on in a 2-1 victory against Valencia with the tournament age bracket going up to 19-years-old.

He made his debut for the U23s last month against Leicester City and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will likely be keeping an eye on him.

The youngster is eligible to play for England or Nigeria and has even been compared to Premier League cult hero and 'Super Eagles' legend Jay-Jay Okocha.

He is so highly rated that The Athletic believe he has already been signed up to a pre-contract for when he turns 17 in February.

The sky is the limit for Shoretire and United fans will be excited to watch his development.
