The 16 year old is highly rated among academy scouts and scored 17 goals and notched 10 assists for Cardiff’s Under-16s in just 11 games last season.
Despite Italian origins, Biancheri has represented Wales three times at youth level but could also register for Italy or England in the future.
His debut came in a 2-0 defeat to France and he has also played against Croatia and Sweden.
This scouting vídeo from Ultrasfctv shows clearly what has attracted United to the young talent.
His exceptional hold up play combined with explosive pace and power are remarkable for a player of his age.
He can play across the front line and also as a number 10. He is said to excel at using his pace to get behind opposition defences.
Chelsea were also reported to be interested in the young Welshman before United pounced.
Biancheri is joining United on a scholar contract and will sign professional terms in September when he turns 17 years of age.
