Manchester United have completed the signing of France Under-17 international Aliou Traore.

The Premier League side, who defeated Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday night, have snapped up the former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder following a successful trial and having featured for The Red Devils during their pre-season camp in Austria.

The 16-year-old, who made his debut during United’s 3-2 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Under-18 Premier League Cup, should be eligible to feature for the club in the FA Youth Cup this term and face Derby County on December 13.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

United’s U-18 coach, Kieran McKenna, told 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.”
