Manchester United look set to complete the signing of another forward this January in 16-year-old Cardiff wonderkid Gabriele Biancheri.
Biancheri is understood to be attracting interest from a variety of clubs and was courted by Chelsea last summer.
The youngster will sign a professional contract upon his 17th birthday in September and has already had a medical with the Old Trafford club this past weekend, the Daily Mail reports.
He has scored 17 goals and provided five assists across various age groups over the course of this season and that has caught the eye of many.
Biancheri currently represents Wales at youth level – making three appearances for their under-17 side – but also has an Italian background and is eligible to play for them if he wishes to.
He has come through the youth ranks at Cardiff City, making his U18s debut in the FA Youth Cup fixture earlier in the season and has also been part of the U21s.
Manchester United can only sign players aged 18 or under due to Brexit regulations and as a result, they’ve been looking for the best talent domestically and consider Biancheri as one of them.
This winter, they already signed one forward in the form of Wout Weghorst on loan from Burnley as they looked to add to their senior options following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in November.

They have been linked with summer moves for Harry Kane, Goncalo Ramos, Victor Osimhen and Benjamin Sesko linked with a move.
