An attacking player who can play in the no.10 role or a wider role.
A forward of that ilk, Mellor has been with the club a long time, and is well versed in the United culture. He scored in the friendly against MSK Zilina in Slovakia in 2016 and has experience of playing in the Marveld tournament and other junior competitions for the Reds. A first Under-18 goal came in the exciting 4-3 Premier League Cup win over Arsenal at The Cliff. The homegrown product was part of the successful Under-18s squad in 2017/18 and also competed in the UEFA Youth League for Nicky Butt's side. Mellor, who scored in the home draw with arch-rivals Liverpool back in December at The Cliff, ended up with five goals in 20 outings (13 as a substitute) for Kieran McKenna's Premier League North winners. The Mancunian came off the bench in the national final against Chelsea in the last game of the youth campaign and is expected to have an even bigger part to play in 2018/19.
