Shola Shoretire has agreed a lucrative first professional contract with Manchester United, according to SportsMail.
The 17-year-old snubbed strong interest from Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus, to commit to the English club.
Shoretire, who is regarded as one of the best attacking midfielders of his age, will sign his deal this week.
Although he only turned 17 on Tuesday, he has been playing for United’s U23s, has trained with the first team and is widely tipped by the club’s coaches to break into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad this season.
Shoretire made his UEFA Youth League debut at 14, the youngest ever for United and has starred in the FA Youth Cup.
Born in Nigeria, he was raised in Newcastle, and cites former Barcelona striker Ronaldinho as his idol. He plays off the left wing but is comfortable on the right or behind the striker.
