This season, the Red Devils have stumbled out of the gate, losing three of their first five games. The club is plagued by off-field problems as well, and the fates of troublesome wingers Jadon Sancho and Antony are far from assured.
Erik ten Hag is under increasing pressure to right United’s ship. The possibility that the Dutchman would be fired is growing, although for the time being, it seems exceedingly unlikely that such a harsh step would be taken so early in the campaign.
The leaders of United will be hoping that Ten Hag can put the team back among the best in England and Europe. United will need to do this by keeping both the present and the future in mind.
To that aim, acquiring some of the most promising young talent available is crucial, and Man Utd achieved just that back in February.
Gabriele Biancheri, a dynamic Welsh striker, was signed by the Red Devils from Cardiff City. The 16-year-old, who signed a four-year contract, has already made many appearances for Wales at the Under-17 level.
Prior to the 2023–24 season, United included Biancheri in their list of new scholarship agreements. Fabrizio Romano claims that Biancheri has moved quickly to take the next step, nevertheless.
In fact, the transfer expert tweeted, “Gabriele Biancheri has penned his first professional contract with Manchester United.”
The arrangement was reached on Biancheri’s 17th birthday (yesterday), which shows how highly the young person is thought of. It also shows how swiftly he’s progressing through the club’s younger ranks.
This season, Biancheri received a promotion to the United Under-18s, where he scored his first goal in a 4-1 victory over Stoke City’s U18s in late August.
