Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho could reportedly hand a debut to wonderkid Callum Gribbin against Southampton.

According to Metro, the 19-year-old training with United’s first team squad and stayed longer than some of the other academy hopefuls, meaning he could be set to feature on Saturday.

The winger is apparently recognised by the club as one of the standout players of the Red Devils’ next generation, and has already drawn comparisons to Ryan Giggs.

Gribbin joined United at the age of nine and Nicky Butt has been credited with helping the teenager fix application issues since his arrival at the club.

The Salford-born youngster could take a place on the bench as Jose Mourinho looks to shuffle the pack amid a busy festive period.
