According to a report, Manchester United has snapped a FIVE YEAR OLD kid to join their famous football academy with an intention to turn the boy into the next Wayne Rooney. Charlie Jackson was spotted by Old Trafford scouts when he was JUST THREE! He lives with his parents and older brother Jake, 12, in Denton, Greater Manchester and was spotted by United while playing at a local soccer scheme called Footytotz.
However, they had to wait for another two years when he’s old enough to join their development centre. Coaches seem to be impressed with the little boy and tip him as a future superstar. 😀
Parents Andy and Claire, both 38, said they could not be happier he has joined the Reds, even though the family are all fans of bitter rivals Manchester City. Accountant Andy said: “His idols are Joe Hart and Mario Balotelli and at first he was mortified that he had to train with United, but he seems to be getting over that bit now. He loves it”. And he WILL LOVE MAN UTD like Wayne Rooney and the others once he step into the Theatre of Dreams!
