Manchester United look set to sign Atalanta’s 18-year-old winger Amad Traore.
United have been chasing a new forward all summer but have been frustrated in their pursuit of top target Jadon Sancho.
The Red Devils have since being eyeing a move for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele .That now looks unlikely too, with reports in Spain claiming the proposed switch has collapsed ahead of tonight’s 11pm deadline.
United were interested in a loan move, while Barcelona wanted a £65million permanent deal for Dembele, who has disappointed at the Nou Camp since his £95m move in 2017.
Despite being used sparingly by new Barca boss Ronald Koeman, Dembele has reportedly decided to fight for his place in Spain.
Now United have turned to Traore, with journalist Fabrizio Romano reporting he will join in a £27million deal but will not move to Old Trafford until January.
Amad Traoré will join Manchester United on next January, here we go! Deal agreed right not with Atalanta but the young talent [born in 2002] will arrive on 2021 because of work permit and passport timing.
