Following yesterday's story that Manchester United were in pole position to sign Crewe Alexandra's 18 year old midfielder Nick Powell, with a deal 90% done, the club have released a statement confirming that the young star in the making will move to Old Trafford on the 1st July for an undisclosed fee. The deal could amount in total from £5M to £8M, depending what outlet you believe. Here is some quotes from Sir Alex Ferguson & the player himself, from ManUtd.com

"We have scouted Nick for months now. He is an exceptional talent and has been schooled well at Crewe. I’m delighted he has chosen to come to United. He has a lot to offer and we are all looking forward to working with him."

Sir Alex Ferguson

"It really is a dream come true to be signing for Manchester United. I have had a great time at Crewe and I would like to thank them for helping me to develop as a player over the past 13 years. I’m excited about continuing my development with Sir Alex and the world-class players in the squad. The thought of making the step up to the Premier League next season is an exciting prospect. I can’t wait to get started."

As I said yesterday, I really like the deal, and it continues are trend of recent years of buying young, quality players. While I don't think he will be ready for Premier League football just yet, he could feature for the club in cup competitions, or he could be sent out on loan, to a Championship club if a Premier League club does not decide to take a punt on him. But one thing is for sure. The boy certainly has talent!


That goal could grace any game in the world!
