Done Deal: Manchester United Complete Stunning Move For Top Target



Theo Richardson

Manchester United have completed the signing of teenage goalkeeper Theo Richardson.

The 18-year-old arrived at United last season on trial and has been an impressive figure for the under-18s of the club and was also named on the bench for he Under-23s during the course of the season.

Manchester United have not announced the signing but Richardson has been handed a profile on the club website which reads: “Signed on a permanent contract after arriving on a short-term basis towards the end of the 2016/17 season.

“Formerly with Leeds United, he produced some outstanding performances when thrust into the Reds’ Under-18 team to earn a deal over the course of the summer.”

This comes after the arrivals of several youngsters to the club this summer window which is part of Jose Mourinho’s plan to rebuild the Red Devils.

United, known for their pedigree of building young talents have produced a number of superstars from their academy with the current crop in the first team being Marcus Rashford, Jese Lingard and Axel Tuanzebe.

Although the Portuguese boss has been criticised for not developing young talents during his time at Chelsea and Real Madrid but he appears to have tolled a different line with the Red Devils, showing his intent to give youngsters chances to prove their worth since he joined Manchester United last summer.
