Amad Traore will be joining Old Trafford in January an agreement has been reached with Atalanta.
Manchester United finalized a deal to sign 18-year-old right-winger Amad Diallo Traore, one of the brightest prospects in Serie A football.
The Atalanta teen will join Manchester United in January pending a work permit.
Despite playing only 24 minutes of senior football, the 18-year old winger is deemed as the next big thing in world football.
The fee is estimated to be worth £19m with £18m in add ons.
Traore was about to join Parma on loan but the deal collapsed when Manchester United made a late bid yesterday before the deadline.

Atalanta star Papu Gomez said, “He’s a future star, trust me. During our trainings, he seems like Messi! You can’t stop him, he’s unbelievable, our centre-backs have serious problems when Traoré is on the pitch. He’s fantastic.”
