Done Deal: Manchester United Beat Liverpool To Secure Deal For Highly Rated Winger
A Manchester United youngster poached from Liverpool has put pen to paper on a breakthrough deal at Old Trafford.
Last summer, Manchester United secured the services of promising right winger, Ethan Ennis. Aged just 16 at the time, Ennis joined United’s academy after rejecting a scholarship at Anfield. That was despite the prospect playing a crucial part in Liverpool’s march to the FA Youth Cup final.
That sparked a scramble for his services between United and Chesea, with the Red Devils ultimately winning the race.
Since moving to Manchester, Ennis has featured regularly for the club’s Under-18s this season.
Now, according to the reports, Ennis has signed his first contract as a professional at Old Trafford.
Ennis recently confirmed the news on his Instagram account, writing: “Delighted to have signed my first professional contract with Manchester United!
“A big thank you to my family and everybody who has helped me achieve this goal. Hard work continues.”
The article describes Ennis as the ‘standout’ addition to United’s academy last summer.
