Manchester United could be about to introduce the latest academy wonderkid to first-team football, following successful breakthroughs by Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo.

With his 17th birthday approaching, Ten Hag has added Lacey to first-team training ahead of Saturday’s trip to Bournemouth to take a closer look at the young talent. Lacey’s playing style has drawn comparisons to Manchester City superstar Phil Foden and his idol Messi, and he has been the subject of serious hype as he progresses through United’s youth set-up. Despite interest from heavyweight suitors and limited appearances due to injury, Lacey is determined to realize his childhood dream at the club.

The young starlet, who can also be effective on the left and centrally, has been fast-tracked by Ten Hag, following in the footsteps of U18 team-mates in receiving a taste of the first-team environment.
