Manchester United have completed their first signing of the summer transfer window and it is an unexpected name who will arrive at Old Trafford.

The summer might be a couple of months away but Manchester United have been proactive in the transfer market.

The last couple of transfer windows have been a steep learning curve for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Often the Norwegian has missed out on key targets for the club. Such as the likes of Erling Braut Haland who opted to move to Borussia Dortmund instead.

At Old Trafford the tradition has always been to purchase young players with potential. Players who can hone their skills at the club and serve United for decades to come.

From the days of Matt Busby to Sir Alex Ferguson the tradition has long been the foundations of success.

And it is a formula Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be determined to continue.

After retiring as a player, Solskjaer spent almost three years coaching at United’s academy before returning to his home country Norway.

Therefore, Solskjaer is well aware of the youth system at the club and he is keen to promote and help it flourish.

It seems Solskjaer’s first summer signing for United is an example of just how committed the Norwegian is to the youth. And also a surprising name.

The Red Devils have signed 16 year old Czech goalkeeper Radek Vitek according to his current Czech club Sigma Olomouc’s official website via the Daily Mirror.

Radek Vitek impressed United scouts whilst on trial with the club and United decided to make a move for the young stopper.

Vitek has been the starter for Olomouc’s U19 team this season who currently sit third on the league table at the moment.

The Czech goalkeeper is extremely tall at 6 foot 5 inches and his acrobatic saves can be viewed on Youtube.

The 16 year old certainly seems like an impressive talent.

However it is unlikely he will be featuring for the Red Devils’ first team any time soon.

Radek Vitek will probably begin life with the U18s before making his way up the ranks at Old Trafford.
