According to L’Equipe (via Metro), the Frenchman is on the brink of joining the Red Devils, as the teen sensation has reportedly signed a three-year deal with the English giants to join their youth set up.
The 16-year-old, who is already being regarded as the “next Paul Pogba,” is the latest product of PSG’s academy.
As per the report, Traore was also on the radar of other European giants, including the likes of Manchester City and Juventus.
The highly-rated midfielder has represented and captained France at Under-17 level, and had been part of PSG’s academy, which he left to join amateur side Sarcelles at the start of last season.

Traore, who had a trial with the Red Devils in February, will be hoping to replicate Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba by graduating from the famous Manchester United academy and making it big on the international stage.
