Erik ten Hag has called up Charlie McNeill to first team training, with the young striker pictured in training on Wednesday.

McNeill was an unused substitute in Manchester United’s final pre-season friendly in at Old Trafford against Rayo Vallecano.

This was the closest the young striker has come to the first team, and he was back with the under-21s to start the season.

McNeill was a substitute in United’s most recent under-21 fixture, with Spanish striker Mateo Mejia preferred.

But it was McNeill who got the nod to join Erik ten Hag’s most recent training session, where he was pictured alongsie Christian Eriksen, James Garner, Scott McTominay and Tyrell Malacia.

McNeill joined Manchester United from Manchester City in 2020 and scored five goals in the club’s FA Youth Cup winning run earlier this year.

The 19-year-old has scored 40 goals in all competitions in competitive academy matches across the past two seasons, and it is worth giving him a look to see what he is capable of.

Manchester United’s striker options are light, with Anthony Martial and Cristiano Ronaldo the options, one of who has been hit by injury, while the second wants to leave.
