Manchester United have reportedly completed the signing of 16-year-old goalkeeper Ilias Moutha-Sebtaoui from Standard Liege.

According to Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils have won the race for the highly-rated goalkeeper, who was also scouted by Chelsea and he will join their academy in the summer.

The Belgian stopper has completed his medical at the club's Carrington training base ahead of his summer move and will join compatriot Indy Boonen, who was signed earlier in the season from Genk.

Louis van Gaal has been directing a lot of focus towards strengthening the youth ranks as more than a few players have been handed trials and signed during the course of the campaign.

Moutha-Sebtaoui is not the first goalkeeper to be signed by the Red Devils this season, as they snapped up Vanja Milinkovic-Savic from Vojvodina earlier in the season for a reported £1.3m ($2m). The Serbian was allowed to remain on-loan with his former club, but has now revealed that he will join United in the summer and train under goalkeeping coach Frans Hoek.

"In England, I will operate under the instructions of Frans Hoek, the Manchester United goalkeeper coach. It will not be a problem. I've talked to him on several occasions. He's direct and honest. He says things to your face about what is needed. I love that attitude," Milinkovic-Savic said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

The 20-times English champions already have Joel Pereira on their books and this could mean curtains for Ben Amos, Anders Lindegaard and Sam Johnstone, who are all expected to depart Old Trafford in the summer.

The future of current number one David de Gea is also uncertain, with Real Madrid touted to be his next destination, which has seen the club linked with moves for Jasper Cillessen, Petr Cech and Hugo Lloris.
