Milk Cup squad announced

Manchester United have announced the squad for the upcoming Milk Cup tournament in Northern Ireland.

18 teenagers form the travelling party with Belgian playmaker Andreas Pereira the most experienced player on view after featuring regularly for Paul McGuinness' Under-18s last term.

As McGuinness told ManUtd.com recently, it is a very youthful-looking squad with Demetri Mitchell the only other outfield member to have played at Under-18 level, and that was in a brief substitute appearance.

Oliver McBurnie, a 17-year-old Bradford City scholar, has been drafted in with the Bantams' blessing to cover injuries in attack. The striker will spend the duration of the competition with the Reds on work experience after Bradford nominated him for the opportunity.

United squad (number order): Joel Castro Pereira, Tyler Reid, Jordan Thompson, Axel Tuanzebe, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Scott McTominay, Joe Riley, Matthew Willock, Ruairi Croskery, Oliver McBurnie, Demetri Mitchell, Callum Nicholas, Kieran O'Hara, Andreas Pereira, Marcus Rashford, Charlie Scott, Vashiko Dick, Oliver Rathbone.
