The trio all featured for Man Utd in their 2-1 victory over Wolves as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side ended the season on a high.


Manchester United plan to keep Anthony Elanga, Hannibal Mejbri and Shola Shoretire around their first team squad next season — unless they are offered very attractive loans.

The trio all featured for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side against Wolves on Sunday, as United rounded their Premier League campaign off with a 2-1 win at Molineux. Elanga opened the scoring with bullet header — his first ever United goal — while Mejbri came off the bench to make his first team debut.

Shoretire, Amad and Will Fish were the other United youngsters to get opportunities — the latter joining Mejbri in making a senior bow — as Solskjaer shuffled his pack to rest key players before Wednesday's Europa League final against Villarreal.

The Norwegian spoke effusively about all the academy graduates after the game. And MEN Sport understands United are likely to keep the forward triumvirate that ended the game — Elanga (19), Mejbri (18) and Shoretire (17) — at the club for the 2021/22 campaign. They will be given the chance to kick on and win a regular place in senior matchday squads for the coming years.

All three look set to play a part for United in their pre-season fixtures in July, although the club will consider 'really good loan offers' for them, according to a senior source.

Elanga, Mejbri and Shoretire have formed the fulcrum of United's Under-23 side in the past season, with Mejbri winning the club's U23 player of the year and Shoretire winning the fabled Jimmy Murphy young player of the year award for Under-18s.

Solskjaer said the club were rekindling the spirit of Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson by continuing to hand academy graduates their chance in the first team, speaking after the Wolves game.

“You’d like to say that you will see some of these in the future," he said of the young players.

"It was a game in the spirit of Manchester United, Sir Alex and Sir Matt, that you give players a chance.

“I was very, very proud and pleased with the players today, I thought they were excellent, that's my sense of satisfaction, seeing players going out there expressing themselves and enjoying themselves.

"Today it was a Manchester United spirit of a performance with loads of kids that made their debuts and Elanga scored his first goal, I was really proud of them."
