Highly-rated Wales youth striker Gabriele Biancheri has completed his move from Cardiff to Manchester United.

90min reported in January United had agreed a deal to sign the teenage striker, who trained with Cardiff's Under-21 side after making his debut for the Under-18s earlier this season.

Earlier in February, he wrote on Twitter: "After more than nine years my time with Cardiff has come to an end. I’d like to thank all of my coaches for helping me become the player and person I am today and to all my teammates.

"I’ll forever be thankful for the opportunity I’ve had at this club."

On Monday night, he posted a picture with the caption "I'm a red 🔴❤️".

Talent agency Unique Sports Group added: "Gabe Biancheri is a red!! Delighted for client, @Gabe_b9, who has permanently joined Manchester United from Cardiff. Best of luck, Gabe!"

Biancheri, who also qualifies to play for England and Italy at international level, impressed for Cardiff's Under-21 side before Christmas and made a brief cameo in the FA Youth Cup in a 4-3 win against Crewe.
