French midfielder Aliou Traore has signed for Manchester United.

Traore initially linked up with United in February, playing as a trialist in an Under-17 win over Burnley, and joined the side's Under-18s on a pre-season training camp in Austria in the summer.

Manchester City and Juventus were reportedly interested in Traore's signature, but United have sealed the deal.

The 16-year-old arrives at Old Trafford with a huge reputation and has been dubbed the "next Paul Pogba". "He is a really powerful midfielder who likes to run box to box", he told the club's official website. He is very strong technically and is improving all the time.

He made his debut in the 3-2 defeat to Wolves on Saturday in the Under-18 Premier League Cup.

"He is a nice man and his English is improving".

The promising midfielder is yet to perform for Jose Mourinho's side due to age restrictions, but he will be eligible around January, when he turns 17, and could also appear in the FA Youth Cup sooner or later.

'He's settling in well with the boys and has taken to the club really well'.
