AC Milan sign 10 year old girl

Just when you thought all romance in football had been sold on a ship heading to Manchester, Italy has brought us a wonderful story about a little girl from Scotland who now plays for AC Milan.

Aisha Saini was just on holiday with her family in La Manga, Spain when an AC Milan scout asked her to sign up for one of their annual tournaments and now she's part of the same youth setup that once churned out Paolo Maldini.  It's a heart warming, inspiring story and one made all the better by the fact that it's totally normal for a fully grown man to stalk a 10 year old girl in a park and invite her to a camp somewhere in Europe, as long as he works for AC Milan.
