Man United transfer news: Amad Traore deal agreed for €30m - here's what he can do

Traore has agreed a deal with Man United

Manchester United have had a rather quiet transfer window. 

Ahead of deadline day, Donny van de Beek was the club's only major signing, arriving for £35 million. 

But fear not - things could get busy before the window slams shut. 

Reports suggest United are close to securing Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles, with both signings set to be announced by Monday's 11pm deadline. 

And that's not all. According to respected Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano, the club have also agreed a deal to sign Amad Traore from Atalanta. 

However, due to complications with work permits and passports, he will not link up with Man United until January. 

"Amad Traore will join Manchester United next January, here we go!" Romano tweeted. 

"Deal agreed right now with Atalanta but the young talent [born in 2002] will arrive on 2021 because of work permit and passport timing." 

Now, you'd be forgiven for not knowing who Traore is. After all, he's only 18-years-old as has made just three Serie A appearances for Atalanta. 

So just why are Man United splashing €30 million on a rather unknown talent? Well, we'll let his highlights answer that question. 

Check out the impressive compilation below: 

Pretty impressive right? Let's break down some of the teenagers most impressive assets. 

First of all, he's incredibly comfortable with the ball at his feet. Traore isn't afraid to take on - and beat - his man. 

The Ivorian has clearly got an eye for a pass too, just look at the number of assists he racks up in that compilation alone. 

Man United have a star on their hands

The fact he's unselfish enough to square the ball across goal for a teammate to tap in - rather than shooting from a tight angle - shows maturity above his years.  

Traore already looks an accomplished finisher too. His highlights show he's not afraid to shoot from range and can also pick out a corner of the goal. Frightening. 

If we throw in the fact he's the first player born since 2002 to score a Serie A goal, then it's clear Man United have a future star on their hands. Roll on January.
