Petrucci - tipped as the next Francesco Totti - has seen his wages leap from £16,000 a year to the maximum of £95,000 a year allowed.

But it is the chance for his father to work in the gardens of Manchester that have helped to swing the deal.

Petrucci said: "Going to play for the strongest club in the world is a great opportunity for me. It was hard to say no, even though I am a Roma fan.

But United have offered my father Stefano a job as a gardener."

Petrucci added: "Now I'll be at the same club as Cristiano Ronaldo. Bloody hell, what a player!"
