Man United confirm shock wonderkid capture

According to reports from the Daily Star, Manchester United have pulled off the somewhat surprising signing of young emerging Belgian star, Indy Boonen, on a three-year-deal.

The teenage sensation, who is a mere 16-years-of-age, brings with him a reputation for playing attacking and creative football, whilst representing Belgian outfit KRC Genk in his youth.

Boonen now becomes part of a growing contingency of Belgian stars to ply their trade in the Premier League, with both Marouane Fellaini and Adnan Januzaj likely to provide adequate compatriot support for the 16-year-old during his time at Old Trafford.

The left-footed youngster, who has been reportedly touted by the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Bundesliga high-flyers Wolfsburg in the past, also has a brother of similar exciting pedigree.

Thirteen-year-old Seppe, an up-and-coming young goalkeeper, has apparently caught the attention of Man United’s scouts in matching style to Indy, but as his age makes any deal to land the potentially promising star impossible at this current stage, Louis van Gaal may have to wait on the other Boonen brother for now.
