Manchester United signed the teenager Saidy Janko from FC Zurich.


He impressed Manchester United scouts at this year's Blue Stars/FIFA Youth Cup and although he is believed to primarily function as a right-back he can play in a variety of positions on the right side of the pitch.


After that competition Janko was invited for a trial spell at the Aon Training Complex, which seems to have been successful after Manchester United agreed to pay £700k to FC Zurich to see the youngster playing for the Red Devils side.


United also offered the player's family a relocation package so the youngster will settle quickly. Although he will start playing for the youth ranks of United, the Red Devils have agreed to pay additional cash to FC Zurich based on his eventual first team appearances which could take the total fee above £1m.


Saidy did his academic studies at the United School of Sports, the best sports education studies in Zurich and started his career at Inter Zurich before moving to FC Ales Reines. His involvement in a series of youth competitions has put him on a promising road to success and fame.


He was one of the three summer signings for the Red Devils, alongside with Guillermo Varela and Marouane Fellaini.
