Manchester United sign France Under-17s midfielder Aliou Traore

Manchester United have snapped up another talented youngster and this time it's a former Paris Saint-Germain starlet.

"He is a really powerful midfielder who likes to run box to box", he said.

The former Paris Saint-Germain youngster, who is part of the incredibly talented France Under-17 squad, arrives for the Ligue 1 giants with a huge reputation.

Traore had been tipped for great things at PSG before he left to join a team of far lower reputation, Sarcelles.

Traore is just 16-years-old, and is a France youth worldwide.

However, head coach Valverde says it is pointless to talk about transfer rumours, especially while the window is closed. The biggest La Liga clubs - FC Barcelona and Real Madrid - are reportedly coming after two of their best players.

"I'm so glad Mourinho is investing in youth", one wrote. He is very strong technically and is improving all the time.

In fact, the player has already made his debut for United's Under-18s in the Under-18 Premier League Cup against Wolves, a match his side ended up losing 3-2. Arnau Puigmal, a midfielder, arrived from Espanyol and Ethan Galbraith from Northern Ireland after a series of trials at the club.

Let's hope that he enjoys his football at Old Trafford and becomes a future star at the club, like Pogba. The 16-year-old will now be looking to vie for the places as United prepare for the FA Youth Cup tie against Derby County on December 13.

Traore has a play style similar to Paul Pogba.

Finally, Traore has been granted worldwide clearance and has completed his move to United.
