A young player of Forli, defender Luca Ercolani class 1999 (PHOTOS), is about to play for Manchester United. The Viale Roma is handling international transfers with the Red Devils after the boy has backed down a few specimens in England.
Ravenna, Juventus fan and student at the technical ‘Serra’ of Cesena, Ercolani has worn the shirt of Rimini in the past and last season was on loan to the team of students Seahorse. This summer he would return to Forlì but the interest scout David Williams (the same that led the Old Trafford Giuseppe Rossi and Federico Macheda) has meant that its future is now very close to one of the most important companies on the planet.
After lifting the defender Matteo Darmian from Turin (cost around 20 million euro), Manchester could soon close the deal with another Italian, this time Romagna, so going to ‘flesh out’ the coffers of Forli. First offer of the British around 50 thousand euro.
The Forlì asked twice more with, any revenues guaranteed if Ercolani continue in Britain its process of growth and debuts, maybe even in the Premier League. To FIFA regulations, Ercolani will still reach the Manchester 1 November, the month in which will be making its sixteenth year of age.
