Manchester United appear to have wrapped up their first bit of business this January signing an Italian.
Rather than buying a player for their first team, however, United are investing in their youth setup.
Luca Ercolani is a 16-year-old Italian defender, and he’s now made it clear he’s moving to Old Trafford on Instagram.
The teenager has uploaded a series of pictures supporting the claim he’s joining United. Those images include a picture of the lad in a United training top, a big picture of a Red Devils, plus screengrabs of an Italian article reporting on his move to Manchester.
Ercolani is joining Man United from Italian club Forli FC.
A report in Italy claims that Man United will pay 66,000 euros for the teenager.
He will immediately join the Man United academy setup.
