Manchester United have just officially announced the signing of French youngster Aliou Traore.
Manchester United have confirmed the signing of a promising French U-17 international, Aliou Traore. Traore had formerly been with PSG’s academy but departed the club in August of last year.
Since then, the 16-year-old has been linked with a host of top European sides (including the likes of Juventus and Manchester City) but it was the Red Devils who eventually snapped up the highly rated prospect.

Traore made his debut for the United’s U-18s against Wolves over the weekend and, speaking after the game, manager Kieran McKenna lauded Traore’s ability and potential speaking to MUTV.
‘Traore is a boy we’ve been looking at for a while.’
‘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.’
