Juventus have apparently beaten off major competition to sign Laurentiu Branescu, the Romanian Gigi Buffon.
The 16-year-old had attracted significant interest from Manchester United and Aston Villa only to choose a move to Turin.
Branescu had trials with both Premier League clubs and made a big impression.
However, Il Corriere dello Sport understands Juventus have paid €400,000 for the CSM Ramnicu Valcea starlet.
A formal announcement confirming the transfer has yet to be made.
