Manchester United have reportedly agreed a deal to sign teenage Italian centre-back Luca Ercolani, according to the Metro.
The 16-year-old has undergone a number of trials with the club and has apparently been in talks with the Red Devils about a move to Old Trafford since the summer.
And the club have seemingly been impressed enough with his potential that they have made the move to commit to his development by bringing him on board on a longer term basis.
Italian outlet Sport In Romagna has reported that United have agreed a £50,000 fee has been agreed with his club, Forli FC, with the minnows set to earn a bigger windfall based on incentives such as if he makes an appearance in the Premier League.
The player himself has appeared to confirm the move with a series of pictures uploaded to his Instagram account.
