Manchester United have given Italian teenager Pierpaolo D’Errico a week-long trial.
The 16-year-old currently plays his football for Italian side Parabita Heffort Soccer Dream and is the club’s top goalscorer.
Labelled as a “natural born striker” by the football club’s owner Pasquale Bruno, D’Errico has been given a chance to impress the academy staff at the Red Devils.
And according to Gianluca Di Marzio, the youngster made a fantastic first impression by netting a hat-trick in his first trial match for United.
After his stellar performance, D’Errico said: “The comrades were strong. I, however, do not stop dreaming.
“I’m happy to be here, that’s an incredible joy.
“I trained with the U18 team and in the other pitch I could see Zlatan Ibrahimovic and all the other Manchester United players.”
The Italian has reportedly been scouted by a number of top European clubs in recent months.
