Deal close: Man United set to sign Italian midfielder

van gaal333Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have cheered the latest reports they’ve heard, which suggest their club is making important signing.

Whilst big-name players are yet to arrive this month, it seems Louis Van Gaal is getting things sorted for the future as The Express states the Red Devils will sign Italian prospect Luca Ercolani.

United seem to be making a distinct effort to improve the youth ranks within their club and the 16-year-old will follow suit, after being spotted by the same scout who identified Federico Macheda and Giuseppe Rossi.

Ercolani has spent time on trials with United in the past few months and will arrive from the fourth tier of Italian football, with the player seemingly confirming the transfer himself as he posted pictures of himself on social media.

Our landlord has a friend in Italy who rates the young talent very highly and he’s excited to see the teenager shine in England, though he accepts it’ll likely be a while before he gets his chance.

United fans, how many signings do you need this month? Let us know in the comments below!
