He's been in the squad for every Atalanta game prior to the transfer but Atalanta have now dropped him from the squad.
That's annoying. I wasn't aware there was animosity over the transfer.

as expected. Shame. Seems somewhat petty.
Thankfully it's only 2 and a half months before he's here (and with the November int'l break, it'll be more like 2 months), so it shouldn't cost him too much in terms of momentum and sharpness.

Looking forward to seeing him play - I'm sure he'll be getting some time during that busy January period, as well as Pellistri.

Not really, no.

He’s only ever made the squad five times since Jan and not made a single appearance in that same time period.
So it means feck all really. Anyhoo, what did we expect when signing a kid who has barely ever played for them and has to spend a few months at the club knowing he's leaving soon.

I thought he is alreadya united player just waiting for work permit. Technically can Atlanta add him in their squad still? I don't remember the arrangement keeping him there on loan till Dec.

I mean, is that really big news? He has played a total of 7 minutes this season.
So he’s a much longer term project? was under the impression he had a lot more experience but it seems to be all at youth level so far.

I guess it will take at least 2 or 3 years before he can command a first team place.

This is a good question that I can’t answer. I didn’t think we’d ever see him playing for Atalanta again after he ‘signed’ for us but he’s only played 24 minutes of first team football in his career so not sure what people were expecting from him.

I think the transfer isn't complete, just the two clubs have come to an agreement for a future transfer

I doubt that is the case. If united have to file papers for his work permit then they have to show he is their employee (player). If he is expected to arrive in Jan meaning we already have signed him. If we sign him in Jan then his arrival will be delayed by another couple of months.

I have no worries, Jan is only 2 months away and the club probably already have a personal training plan in place for him. Nobody expects him to feature for Atalanta after sealing the transfer anyway.

If he's not going to play why isn't he here already?

Really excited about this signing. Think we have played an absolute blinder here. I know people are reluctant to praise young players excessively but if you take the time to watch Traore you can see he's that level above. Everything he does looks so natural. As said a future superstar.
