McCann has an established reputation amongst English youth football as one of the most exciting talents within the UK and has already been capped at England U16 level.

The star will be hopping to follow in the footsteps of some huge British talent that has come before him to rise through the ranks at Man United.

Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford are currently touted as two of England’s biggest stars and both have risen through the youth ranks at Old Trafford. McCann will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of both with his move to United.
