Man United ready to listen to offers for 19-year-old Aliou Traore as they can afford to let him go with strong competition for midfield positions
- French side Caen have approached Manchester United for Aliou Traore
- The 19-year-old has scored four goals in 16 appearances for United U23s
- The French midfielder could go for around £1million with a sell-on clause
Manchester United are prepared to listen to offers for young French midfielder Aliou Traore.
The 19-year old was snapped up from Paris St Germain and made 16 appearances for the U23s this season scoring four goals.
However, French second division side Caen made an approach for him last week and United are open to a sale.

Traore arrived with a strong reputation and has shown flashes of his potential but competition is getting stronger for midfield positions and United believe they can afford to let him go.
Rather than overload in that position and potentially block the progress of others, they will consider letting him go for around £1m but with a sell on clause.
Benfica, Celtic and Rangers have all been linked with Traore who has one year left on his contract.
Meanwhile, United have asked about Monaco’s 19-year old defender Benoit Badiashile.
However, Bayer Leverkusen are considered favourites after making a £16.5m offer for the 6ft 4ins France U21 international.
