Manchester United have been linked to a host of big-name signings in the current transfer window as Jose Mourinho looks to improve his squad for next season. The Portuguese tactician is famed for getting the best out of proven topflight players, but news from Old Trafford may suggest that the club are also keen on securing the future, even while courting immediate domination.
Kristof Terreur, a popular sports journalist posted a photo on popular social media platform, Twitter today about The Red Devils completing a 4-year deal for 16-year-old Belgian striker, Largie Ramazani who has drawn comparisons with Christian Benteke.
The Europa League holders have already signed Victor Lindelof from Benfica and have been linked with big-money moves for Alvaro Morata, James Rodriguez and Fabinho, but it is the signing of little-known Ramazani that has caught the eye today
The 16-year-old joins from Charlton and was all smiles as he held the club jersey aloft, seemingly pleaded about the opportunity of playing for an illustrious club like ours.

United is a club known for bringing up youth, and we have enjoyed success over the years due to that culture. The class of ’92 comprising of Giggs, the Neville brothers, Nicky Butt, David Beckham and Paul Scholes all graduated from the academy and went on to do great things at the club, a feat Ramazani will be willing to emulate.
Ramazani was born in Burundi but grew up in Belgium, playing for the youth side of Anderlecht before moving to Charlton to continue his development, and showed sufficient promise enough that we have signed him on a 4-year contract.
