Manchester United finalising four-year deal for sought-after Welsh youngster

Manchester United are close to completing the signing of Cardiff City’s Gabriele Biancheri.

According to Fabrizio Romano, United will sign the youngster on a four-year professional contract, and he will make the switch once FIFA approves the deal.

The 16-year-old was the subject of interest for several top clubs, as per The Athletic, but the Red Devils swooped in last month to secure his signature early.

Biancheri qualifies to represent England, Italy and Wales at international level and has opted for the latter, with whom he plays for at Under-17 level.


One for the future

Erik ten Hag is seemingly building his squad for the future, as it’s unlikely the teenager will slot straight into the senior setup.

However, given Alejandro Garnacho’s quick development and breakthrough, it might not be long before the Welshman is awarded chances in the first-team.

Still, Carrington is regarded as one of the best and most successful academies across Europe, so it’s clear to see why Biancheri opted for the move.
