Reports suggest the Red Devils landed Traore at the end of the last month and it appears the midfielder’s move to Old Trafford has been confirmed.
It’s understood Traore has agreed to a four-year contract with his new club and a pictured has emerged of the France Under-17 starlet posing with his United contract.
French outlet Le Parisien tweeted the photograph of the highly-rated teenager putting pen to paper following weeks of intense speculation.

Traore will be with United’s academy next term before he is expected to agree a three-year deal with Jose Mourinho’s first-team.
Juventus and Manchester City were also believed to be monitoring the promising Frenchman this summer but United have got their man.
