Man United sign another striker! Red Devils agree a deal with Cardiff for 16-year-old Gabriele Biancheri with the highly-rated youngster to pen a scholar contract after completing a medical over the weekend
Manchester United are signing Cardiff City teenage striker Gabriele Biancheri on a scholar deal after he had medical at the weekend.
He will sign a professional contract at Old Trafford in September when he turns 17.
The striker was wanted by Chelsea last summer and has scored 17 goals and five assists in all age-grade football this season.

It comes as Erik ten Hag continues to strengthen up front as he looks to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo, who departed in controversial circumstances last year.
United have already brought in Wout Weghorst as a temporary option on a six-month loan deal from Burnley, and the 30-year-old has looked a shrewd addition so far.
He scored his first goal for the club in United’s 3-0 Carabao Cup victory over Nottingham Forest on Wednesday, as they continue to challenge in four competitions.

Another forward in fine form for Ten Hag’s side is Marcus Rashford who scored for the ninth game in a row against Forest but failed to make it 10 in the FA Cup on Saturday.
The manager spoke highly of the forward after the EFL Cup win, as he told reporters: ‘Every player has to make and get his own confidence. He fought for this. He invested in this.
‘Of course, with my coaching staff, we bring in structures that give him routines that he needs to get into the right position.
‘It’s obvious that Marcus at this moment is in really good shape, really good form.’
