Shola Shoretire 'released by Man City for Barcelona training' before joining Man Utd

Manchester United wonderkid Shola Shoretire made his senior debut for the club on Sunday in the Red Devils' 3-1 win over Newcastle, but things could have been much different for the youngster.

Shoretire spent time in the Manchester City academy when he was younger, according to the Daily Mail. However, a family holiday to Spain ended up with him being released by the Citizens, only for United to pounce and snap him up.

City officials were apparently furious with Shoretire for having a trial with Barcelona while out on holiday. The Daily Mail claims City academy staff members decided against keeping him on their books after the trial.
