Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed on Friday that teenagers Shola Shoretire and Hannibal Mejbri will be promoted to Manchester United’s senior squad.
The young attackers have been playing for United’s Under-23s this season and blossomed in Neil Wood’s free-scoring team.
Still just 17 and 18, respectively, Shoretire and Mejbri are seemingly now considered a level above that which United’s second team play, with both looking destined for big futures.
Shoretire was spotted training with the United first-team squad last week and Mejbri is set to join him, with Solskjaer confirming it is his plan to integrate both into the senior group.
Speaking to reporters on Friday, Solskjaer said: “Yeah, we’ve moved Shola up with us, Hannibal will probably join us, and we’ll keep them with us for a while.
