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.
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.”
