Noam Emeran has confirmed his transfer to Manchester United.

After having impressed several of Europe’s elite clubs through his performances in the French youth system, the 16-year-old has finally secured his big move to the Theatre of Dreams.

The forward was pursued by the likes of Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, but the Red Devils have successfully emerged on top to officially seal the deal for the young starlet.

While the actual figures remain unknown, previous reports had indicated that the Mancunian giants were to cough up £90,000 for the French wonderkid.

Emeran confirmed the transfer through his Instagram post, which was captioned: “Happy and proud to announce my signature in this great club and big Family which is @manchesterunited.

“A big thank you to my parents, to Badou my lawyer, my loved ones and the coaches (from Sannois, Amiens and INF) who have made me grow up to this day. This is the beginning of a new and great adventure if God wants it. #MUFC @amiensscfootball.”

The deal was expected to be wrapped up by January, but it has taken until mid-February for all parties to sort out the details and finalise the transfer.

Now, the versatile teenager, who prefers to play on the left wing, is expected to hit the ground running immediately at Manchester United‘s youth academy, where he will certainly be eager to impress.
