Manchester United have made it known that talented youngster Ethan Galbraith has signed his first professional deal with them.
Ethan has played 15 games for the club’s U-18 side and has glaringly impressed the management with his displays. As a reward, he was granted a contract that will tie him down to Old Trafford in the early stages of his professional career.
The 17-year-old moved to the Theater of dreams from Linfield after proving himself during a trial. The youngster will seek to follow the footsteps of Scott McTominay – who has evolved into a first-team star from the academy level.
Manager Jose Mourinho has repeatedly promised to give young players the chance to prove themselves at the top stage. This past season, we saw how he trusted Scott McTominay to play in big games. The youngster played better than the likes of Marouane Fellaini, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian all through the term.
It won’t be too easy for a youngster to burst into the first-team, benching experienced and older guys. However, with hard work and confidence, Ethan could find himself at the top in the twinkling of an eye. He simply need to keep performing well in the U-18 side.
