Meet Isak Hansen-Aarøen, 17-year-old Man Utd winger, who could be prompted to the first-team this season.
Isak Hansen-Aaren has been working out this week with the Manchester United first squad in preparation for their weekend doubleheader.
Although the 17-year-old forward has yet to play for the club at the senior level, he may do so when they play Atletico Madrid and Rayo Vallecano in the near future.
When United plays Atletico in Oslo on Saturday and plays Vallecano at Old Trafford on Sunday, Norwegian prodigy Hansen-Aaren may travel back to his country.
To keep the kid as fit as possible for the senior training sessions, he did not play in the U21s’ victory over Kidderminster on Tuesday night.
Three years ago, when Hansen-Aaren was only 14 years old, United and him agreed to a contract. But he couldn’t join the group until August 2020, when he turned 16. He had trials with Liverpool and Everton before signing with United.
The young Norwegian player joined United a year ago and signed his first professional contract, although he has not yet been included in a senior matchday squad.
other academy student Shola Shoretire was seen working out with the senior team on Thursday as well. The club is looking at loan options for the 18-year-old this summer, thus he was not included in the preseason tour team.
