Manchester United have completed the signing of France international star Aliou Badara Traore from Paris Saint Gremain.
The Red Devils announced the signing during their 3-1 victory over Arsenal on Saturday according to report.
The highly talented player has been dubbed the next Paul Pogba by many fans and pundits due to their similar style of play.
It was thought that both Manchester City and Juventus were interested in the 16-year old signature but United have been able to lure him to Old Trafford after a successful trial with the club.
Following the announcement, United U-18 coach Kieran Mckenna reveals that the club has been looking at the young star “for a while”
“Traore is a boy we’ve been looking at for a while” He Told MUTV
“He is a really powerful midfielder who likes to run box to box,”
“He is very strong technically and is improving all the time”.
“He’s a nice man and his English is improving. He’s settling in well with the boys and has taken to the club really well.”
Traore is unlikely to see first-team action for a while but could learn a lot from both Paul Pogba and the rest of United squad as his development continues.
The talented midfielder turns 17 in January and should be available for the Red Devils’ FA Youth Cup campaign next year.
