Last year Manchester United have announced highly-rated teenager Aliou Traore has signed a professional contract with the club. Traore was United’s most high-profile academy addition and he spent time with United’s youngsters at their pre-season training camp in Austria. He made his debut in the Premier League cup clash with Wolves.
While five youngsters joined Manchester United’s first team, Aliou Traore has been promoted to the under-23s and made his first ever under-23 start in Premier League Cup game against Reading.
Traore is described as a ‘midfield powerhouse’ by the United website and some followers of French youth football have likened him to a young Paul Pogba.
