Charlie McNeill and Joe Hugill send messages to Manchester United fans after signing new deals
Manchester United have tied down the club’s most prolific young strikers to new contracts.
Joe Hugill and Charlie McNeill, both 17, have signed new deals, the club announced.
United did not specify the length of the deals, describing them as ‘long term contracts’.
Hugill scored 16 goals last season, 10 for the under-23s and six for the under-18s.
He is considered the more first-team ready of the two, after spending the last week with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad for pre-season. He played in games against Derby and QPR.
Charlie McNeill netted a staggering 25 goals last season for the under-18s, 24 in the league and one in the Youth Cup.
He also provided seven assists and went onto make his under-23 debut.
McNeill also sent a message out after signing his new contract. His 2020/21 season was the perfect introductory campaign after switching from City last year.
United also announced that under-23s goalkeeper Paul Woolston has signed a one year contract.
Woolston’s contract had been set to expire, before he suffered a serious injury. United gave him a one year deal and want to right by him.
