Manchester United have reportedly agreed a £27m deal to sign Amad Traore from Atalanta with the teenage sensation set to join the Reds in January 2021 due to passport and permit complications.
Traore, 18, has been with Atalanta his entire career after joining their youth ranks all the way back in 2015.
The talented prospect has featured in 96 matches in all competitions for Atalanta including in their youth sides and has been directly involved in a hugely impressive 62 goals.
The highly-rated teenage winger is best suited to playing on the right-side of a front-three and is widely considered to be one of the best youth prospects in Italy’s top-flight.
According to a recent report from leading journalist Fabrizio Romano United have reached an agreement to sign the youngster for a sum of around £27m.
Romano goes onto report that due to work permit and passport complications Traore will not team-up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side until the turn of the new year.
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.

Following Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles, Traore is set to become United’s third summer deadline day signing.
