Man Utd fast-track Morrison promotion as Real Madrid, Barcelona circle

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson plans to promote Ravel Morrison to his first team squad.

The People says Morrison is on the brink of a call-up to Manchester United's pre-season tour of America - with Ferguson ready to upgrade the controversial starlet to first-team status.

The 18-year-old attacking midfielder is judged by many to be the most gifted English teenager to emerge for years - and his talent has alerted scouts from Barcelona and Real Madrid who have kept tabs on him.

Morrison was a star performer as United won the FA Youth Cup last month.

It is understood Ferguson and United's coaches have held talks on whether to fast-track the youngster - and are considering taking him on the five-match American tour.
