The world’s most famous Football club Manchester United have signed a gifted nine-year-old boy after his grandfather sent the Premier League champions a DVD showcasing the boy’s talents which has become a YouTube sensation.The boy’s dribbling and goalscoring prowess for an Under-10 side in Brisbane, Australia, feature in a four-minute YouTube clip is already viewed by more than 800,000 times.

Rhain Davis, who was born in England but has lived in Australia since the age of four, was hailed by the British press on Thursday as the next Wayne Rooney after the United striker.

Manchester United confirmed the signing but played down the hype around Davis, who has moved back to Cheshire in northern England with his father, near the club’s training ground.

Manchester United spokesman said,

He is a member of our academy and we don’t comment on individual members. What was so unusual in Davis’s case was that his skills were brought to the attention of United’s youth scouts by the DVD submission, which could inspire other hopefuls.

Davis has been thrilled at the chance to rub shoulders with some of his idols.
