Hercule Poirot of the scouting world
- May 10, 2009
Manchester United are exploring the possibility of signing right-winger Amad Traore from Atalanta.
The MEN understands Ivory Coast-born Traore, 18, is not seen as an alternative to Jadon Sancho and United have contacted Atalanta amid competition from other clubs.
Italian sources have warned Traore will not be cheap despite his playing time in Serie A amounting to just 30 minutes. Traore has been heavily linked with a loan move to Parma.
Traore became the youngest player, at 17 years and 109 days old, to score on his Serie A debut in Atalanta's 7-1 thrashing of Udinese last season and travelled with the squad to Lisbon for their Champions League quarter-final defeat to Paris Saint-Germain last month
