He has already captained the national side at U17 level and was said to have attracted the likes Manchester City and Juventus prior to signing for United's youth set-up.

"He's really a strong midfielder who likes to run from one penalty box to the other, he's very technically strong and still growing", McKenna said.

The former-Paris Saint-Germain midfielder signed a contract at Man United some months ago as part of a whole host of foreign signings into the academy sign during the summer.

Traore impressed on trial with the club in a 7-0 win over Burnley in February and it's easy to see why United have snapped up the 16-year-old.

He made his U 18s bow on Saturday and came close to getting a debut goal, with a couple of long-range efforts.

It could be that Traore gets the opportunity to line up alongside fellow Frenchman Paul Pogba at some stage in the future.

Aliou Traore joins on a free transfer from Sarcelles, having earlier enjoyed a spell in the Paris Saint-Germain youth setup.
