    Davide Petrucci

    When he arrived from Roma there was all sorts of talk about him being the next Totti and the next best thing in Italian football but he has gone off the radar a bit and I haven't heard him mentioned in a while. I know he had a long lay off with injury last season but I haven't heard anything since. Has anyone any info on him ?

    Haven't seen a great deal either. He seemed to be going very well up until his injury but I haven't heard anything since. Do you know if he's still carrying that injury ? Do you reckon he can make it into the first team this season ?

    All about finding the right team for him, not many Championship teams require a playmaker and if they do, they probably have one already.

    Re: What ever happened to Davide Petrucci ?

    I think he had a lot of trouble with growing pains and had other injuries stem from there. He's been on the sidelines for a hell of a long time though, it'll take him some time to get his game back. He's obviously a talent though, Roma wouldn't have called him Totti's heir for nothing

    9 months he's been out for I believe. Pogba was out for a while and came back like he'd never been away. Hopefully Petrucci will be the same.

    I thought Petrucci was out for longer than that? almost 14 months??
    he's back in full training it, seems he had growing pains, terrible pain around the groin area as per Twitter.. tht's gotta hurt!!

    I meant to put this thread in the Reserve section but anyway.. Petrucci looks like he is getting back to full fitness and from the cameos I've seen since his comeback he looks like an excellent player. Plays a lot like Morrison actually. He has great vision and a good shot too from the looks of things. Hopefully that's the end of his injury problems because he's a very good prospect

    Yeah, still not seen a lot of him, but just watched Reserves highlights of the 2-2 draw with Sunderland, he came on and looked very impressive, unlucky not to get a goal and went into a 50/50 with the GK with no fear. Some great touches too. And one great shot at goal, reminded me of Scholes, so powerful.

    Seems he was brilliant against West Ham reserves after he came on in the 60th minute. nice to see him getting back to his best!

    Here's another lad... do we really need a creative midfielder? A bossman is what we need in midfield.

    Parker and Fletcher on rotation would be a good combo, I think Fletch's lack of form could be also down to too much football over the past 3 seasons? Hasn't he been playing in majority of our games? (well expect for the last few months).

    And we do need someone like Petrucci, he's capable of picking out passes like Scholesy, we need someone like that once Scholesy retires. Tunnicliffe and Pogba are players who can boss the midfield!

    Yes but i'm talking about now... none of those will be ready next season which is why Parker might be a good alternative to the likes if we can't get a De Rossi or Schweinsteiger. Depends how much Parker would cost though too.

    Anyone think he might make the bench this weekend against Blackpool?

    I'm pretty sure we'll see some youngsters on the bench. maybe one or two from Brady, Drinkwater, Petrucci, De Laet, Ajose, Matty James??

    Star of the show again. Will hopefully go to Bilbao even if it's just to sit on the bench. Experience will be good.

    Contract is up in the summer you'd hope if he stays fit to the end of the season he'll get a new deal and start getting a look in with the first team.

    It's a hell of a step from the reserves to our first team though have to admit I've not seen the reserves this season so can't really say how good he is but almost every game he gets rave reviews.

    Yeah it is a massive step up. Didn't see tonight's game but his performaces in general when I've watched have been very good. That said though Eikrem and even Norwood at the back end of last season were just as good for the reserves and neither have or will make it at United. I'd like to see Petrucci given a chance though considering the work he's put in.

    Good interview, pity others around him *Pogba don't have the same attitude.

    The Mirror say United are to offer Petrucci a new three year contract.
