Manchester United has faced a challenging start to the season, suffering three defeats in their first five matches. Off-field issues, including uncertainties surrounding wingers Jadon Sancho and Antony, have added to the club’s woes. While there is growing speculation about the future of manager Erik ten Hag, it is unlikely that he will be sacked so early in the campaign.
United’s leadership is counting on Ten Hag to steer the club back to the top of English and European football. To achieve this, the club must invest in promising young talent alongside its current squad.
In February, Manchester United made a strategic move by signing the talented Welsh striker Gabriele Biancheri from Cardiff City. The 16-year-old joined the club on a four-year deal and has already represented Wales at the Under-17 level multiple times.
As part of their preparations for the 2023/24 season, Manchester United included Biancheri in their list of new scholarship deals. However, Fabrizio Romano has reported that Biancheri wasted no time in taking the next step in his career.
Romano tweeted, “Gabriele Biancheri has penned his first professional contract with Manchester United.” This significant development occurred on Biancheri’s 17th birthday, showcasing both the high regard in which the youngster is held and his rapid progress within the club’s youth ranks.
Biancheri was promoted to Manchester United’s Under-18 team this season and marked this step with his first goal at that level during a 4-1 victory against Stoke City’s U18s in late August.
