Manchester United youngster Charlie Savage is set to reunite with former Red Devil prospect Charlie McCann at Forest Green Rovers.

According to BBC Sport, Charlie, son of former Blackburn Rovers midfielder Robbie, has agreed to join Forest Green on loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old featured for Erik ten Hag’s Red Devils during Tour 22 and in the two winter friendlies against La Liga sides Cadiz and Real Betis.

But the Wales Under-21 international is yet to form part of a competitive matchday squad under the former Ajax manager.

Charlie Savage set to reunite with former Manchester United starlet at Forest Green Rovers

The midfielder’s solitary appearance for the Manchester United first team came last season under interim boss Ralf Rangnick.

The Welshman was brought on in injury time in the Champions League group stage dead rubber against Young Boys.

United’s number 51 is set to embark on his first loan spell away from the twenty-time league champions and he’ll reunite with his former Manchester United Academy teammate Charlie McCann.

McCann left Manchester United as a free agent in the summer of 2021 and joined Scottish giants Rangers on a free transfer.

Although the two-time Northern Ireland Under-21 international predominantly turned out for the Ibrox giants’ B team, the 20-year-old made eight first team appearances for Rangers’ first team.

But the fellow midfielder yesterday signed a long-term deal with Forest Green and he could partner Savage in midfield at the Bolt New Lawn.

With Forest Green rooted to the bottom of the League One table, McCann and Savage will be hoping to inspire Ian Burchnall’s side to safety with 18 league games remaining.

McCann made 62 appearances for United across the under-18 and under-21 sides. He scored 17 goals and provided seven assists.
