Charlie Savage, a Manchester United youth player, has been promoted to the club’s senior first team.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils have introduced the talented teenager to the senior squad after he requested to train with the first team this weekend.
Despite the fact that former interim manager Ralf Rangnick gave Savage his senior debut against BSC Young Boys in the Champions League last season, it is clear that new manager Erik ten Hag holds the same regard for him.
Understood to have received loan offers from clubs in League One and the Championship during the summer transfer window, after rejecting all approaches, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Savage handed more minutes this season.
Not only that, but after allowing James Garner to sign for Everton on a permanent deal earlier in the summer, it could be that ten Hag sees something in Savage that he did not see in the midfielder’s former academy teammate.
Since joining the Red Devil’s prestigious youth academy several years ago, Savage, who has three years left on his deal, has gone on to feature in 62 youth matches, in all competitions, directly contributing to 15 goals along the way.
