Europe biggest clubs are after a young goalkeeper from Romania who is considered a big talent with a bright future and considered by the Italian press the “new Buffon”.

At only 16 years old Laurentiu Branescu is the first choice for CSM Ramnicu Valcea, a Romanian team from second division. Branescu is also the first choice for Romania U-17.

The Romanian youngster was on trial at Manchester United. The English side officials were impressed by his qualities and started the negotiations with the Romanian club but eventually this runaway was abandoned. Chelsea, Liverpool and Juventus were also interested and at some point the Italian newspapers were suggesting that Juventus have managed to reach an agreement with the Romanian club for a sum of around €900000.

However the player’s agent infirm this news and suggest that he is still a player of the Romanian side.

Laurentiu Branescu is playing for CSM Ramnicu Valcea since 2004 and made his senior debut at the age of 15 in the second league.
