The youngster recently penned professional terms with the club and was also promoted to first-team training alongside Hannibal Mejbri. Despite his young age, he has stood out for Neil Wood’s Under-23 side.
Under-23 manager Neil Wood lavished praise on the youngster and holds him in high regard. The fact that the 17-year-old can impresses in an age group well above his station is a testament to his skill.
Shoretire could be part of the United team that travels to Turin to take on Real Sociedad on Thursday. Whether he has a realistic chance of making his debut remains to be seen.
United have named 27 players in their Europa League squad, including four goalkeepers. With teams able to name 12 substitutes on the bench, some of United’s youngsters could be part of the matchday squad.
The tournament has acted as the starting point for a number of United youngsters. A slew of them were given their debuts last season as United waltzed their way to the semifinals.
A versatile player, Shoretire can be deployed anywhere along the frontline. He and fellow attacker Amad Diallo have been among the goals for the Under-23s of late.
A game against Sociedad will, however, represent a bigger challenge. The La Liga side are currently fifth in the Spanish top-flight and could give United a run for their money.
