The right-back has completed a dream move to Old Trafford this week.

This January has been somewhat quiet for Manchester United in the transfer market. The club have only signed Victor Valdes, himself a free transfer who had been training with the club for the past two months, but yesterday they added a new recruit, but not a big name.

Instead they have announced the signing of 20-year-old right-back Sadiq El Fitouri, on an 18-month deal, from Salford City.

He told the Manchester United website upon completing his move:

"This is honestly a dream come true for me and I have to thank Salford City for the chance, as well as the faith they have shown in me.

"I am really looking forward to what happens next and to be given the opportunity to do so at Manchester United is unbelievable."

Interestingly the Libya-born star was previously on the books at rivals Manchester City and was playing for the Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and co run non-league side Salford before undergoing a trial at United earlier this month.

El Fitouri was at United's big rivals as a scholar before he was released by the club and he only joined Salford in mid-December before catching the eye of the Class of '92 boys at the non-league club.

In the wake of his deal, plenty of people have happily been sharing a picture of the young lad in the famous Sky Blue of Manchester City.

United fans will hope he shines in red.
