DC Philip Healey, of GMP’s City of Manchester division, said:
“This incident happened six months ago but our investigation has continued – leading us to this new line of enquiry.
“Today, we are releasing CCTV of two men we would like to speak to. We believe the men in these images can assist us with our enquiries so I would like to encourage them or anyone who knows them to get in touch.
“This was a shocking attack that left a young man with life changing injuries and could have , quite easily, resulted in even more serious consequences for him and others involved.
“I would also like to use this opportunity to appeal to anyone with information, who hasn’t already contacted police or Crimestoppers, to do so as soon as possible.”
