Man Utd to move for Roma youngster

11 May 2008 by


Italian newspaper from Rome ‘Il Romanista’ has reported that Man Utd are interested in signing 16-year old striker Davide Petrucci from Roma after the Italian youngster rejected a £1000/month contract from his current club. After the success of bringing up Giuseppe Rossi in the Man Utd academy, after signing him early from Parma, and currently bringing up Federico Macheda (after signing him from Lazio), Sir Alex Ferguson may be ready to add Petrucci to the Red Devils’ academy.

Petrucci is a regular player for the Italian Under 17 squad and is a very hot prospect for the future, especially if he chooses his club wisely. Man Utd have an exceptional track record of producing star players in their academy.
