Man United Contract.

Charlie announced the news of his first contract in a post on social media.

Delighted to have signed my first professional contract @ManUtd. I would like to thank all of my friends, family and everyone @neweraglobalsports for all their support. The hard work continues,” he wrote on Twitter. 

Robbie offered a reply to his son’s original tweet and had the following to say:

“So so proud of you! Your hard work, dedication and desire is paying off!” Savage said.

“Keep working as hard as you possibly can, there will be ups and downs but keep believing in yourself, people will want to knock you down but keep getting up and showing everyone what you can do”
