SourceAccording to the (Express), Manchester United are very close to signing French wonderkid Aliou Traore who left PSG last month. He looks set to sign a deal with Man Utd as he impressed the coaches by scoring a goal in a 7-0 victory in Manchester United youth team.
Manchester United have definitley slowed down in signing youth players since Sir Alex Ferguson left Old Trafford. Sir Alex’s last signing for the club was Wilfred Zaha and Manchester United haven’t signed that many players who’re that young and have that much potential. Even though Zaha ended up being a Man United flop, it doesn’t mean that he wasn’t of high potential at that moment in time and that he can’t still become a top player.
Every young player must dream of playing at Old Trafford but when some get the opportunity they seem to turn it down because of the fear of not making it. It is well known that at least 7 at out 10 Man United wonderkids become a total flops. Gabriel Obertan, Wilfred Zaha, the Da Silva twins and many more.
It’s about time they signed a young player that breaks into the first team squad as fast as Marcus Rashford. They need someone who can make that instant impact. Cristiano Ronaldo was a top player but probably wasn’t regarding as a big signing at the time. Ever since Fergie left, United seem to go for the big names.
