Manchester United youngsters Shola Shoretire and Charlie Savage impress in summer training
Both players are amongst some of United’s brightest upcoming talents and penned fresh terms with the club earlier this year. While Shoretire has already made his first-team bow, Savage will be hoping to follow in his footsteps next season.
Shoretire not just became the youngest player to represent United in club competition but also won the club’s Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year. He made 21 appearances in the Premier League 2 this season for United’s U23s while Savage racked up 23 appearances for United in the U18 Premier League.
18-year-old Savage is the son of former United midfielder Robbie Savage. He will hope to leave behind a more impactful legacy at the club in comparison to his father, who in fact earned his reputation elsewhere.
The player shared a video of him and Shoretire training on Twitter. Despite being the off-season, it would appear that the duo are keen to work hard and better their game. Whether this will help them gain a spot in United’s pre-season squad remains to be seen.
Another youngster who is seeking to get a grip on his early preparation is 17-year-old Charlie McNeill. He was pictured at the weekend working with ‘bespoke speed development’ company Need For Speed 100. England star Phil Foden is among their esteemed clients. We wouldn’t complain if McNeill follows in the City star’s footsteps.
United have a number of promising young players coming through the ranks. Hopefully, the initiative taken by the trio will also inspire others around them to step up their preparations ahead of the 2021/22 season.

It is not possible for every youth player to make it at a club of United’s stature. While it remains to be seen if Shoretire or Savage will make the cut, it will not be due to a lack of talent or effort.
