Manchester United secured the signing of Belgian teenage striker Largie Ramazani from English League one side Charlton Athletic on Monday. The 16-year-old began his youth career in Anderlecht’s academy before moving to Charlton to continue his progress as a player.
Ramazani impressed the Manchester United scouts during his time at Anderlecht, and footage of him in action is highly scant, aside from a video published in 2013, which shows the player training with his younger brother Diamant.
The teenage sensation arrived at United’s Carrington training complex on Monday to begin his pre-season training, and it’s understood that the player has joined the club on a four-year-deal.
Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur tweeted a picture of Ramazani holding up a United shirt after making the move.

Born in Burundi, Ramazani became the third United academy recruit at Old Trafford this summer, after Aliou Badara Traore and Northern Ireland’s under-17 captain Ethan Galbraith. PSG academy player Traore signed a four-year contract after weeks of speculations, while Galbraith put pen to paper on a three-year deal.
Manchester United have made just one addition to the first team set-up in Victor Lindelof, and Mourinho is desperate to wrap up the deal for Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata before the team flies off for the pre-season tour to the United States on July 9th.
