Ethan Galbraith at Manchester United, hard to tell if he'll make it at United, but I am 100% convinced he'll be a Premier League level footballer for the majority of his career.
Noticed that a player called Enes Sali made his full international debut for Romania on Sunday night vs Liechtenstein....at 15 years old.
This was about 8 months after his sub debut for their Under-16's and 2 months after he broke the Romanian record for youngest league goalscorer.
Born in Canada and ended up at La Masia before Gheorghe Hagi tempted his father back to Romania and into his academy and eventually into the first team of the club he owns, Farul Constanta.
You don't make an International debut for a country like Romania at 15 unless you're a bit special usually.
Ive heard a bit of buzz. Im sceptical of young players with exceptional physique. Sometimes their physical development relative to their peers masks their flaws.
If we signed a kid like him and sent him out on loan for a couple years, that could be interesting. And even if it doesn't work out, that was worth a punt.
Really not sure what the deal is re signing under 18s. I'll Google it up.Didn't they just outlaw that? (under 18)
Will make English youth even more expensive/valued, if nobody can make foreign wonderkids HG. Pretty sure it was this (or maybe non-eu? some geek will know exactly)
