Manchester United In A Move For A Messi-Like Teenager As Alternative For Sancho

Manchester United are reportedly considering a bid for Atalanta right-winger Amad Traore as an alternative to Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils being on the hunt for a new forward this summer, but have so far been reportedly said to be reluctant to pay the Bundesliga side’s the sum of £108million valuation of England international Sancho.

Negotiations have recently come to a hold and according to the Manchester Evenings News, Old Trafford chiefs are digging out the possibility of a move for the Ivory Coast-born Traore.

The 18-year-old became an eye saw last season after scoring in his Serie A debut against Udinese, but has spent the majority of his season playing for Atalanta’s youth side last season, where he scored six goals and gave five assists in 16 appearances in the Primavera 1 division.

Papu Gomez, his team mate has incredibly compared him with Lionel Messi due to his playing style.

The 32-year-old said on an Instagram Live: “He plays like Messi.

Jamie O’Hara says Manchester United paying a total of £100m for Jadon Sancho would be 'wrong' and 'really stupid'

He further revealed that “there are defenders in the first-team that sometimes cannot stop him. In order to stop him in training, we have to kick him.”

Meanwhile, United’s top target Sancho has reportedly told Borussia Dortmund that while he’d be content to remain at the club, he’d be ‘happy’ if he joins the Red Devils.

Ed Woodward has allegedly wasted the whole transfer window trying to bring to Old Trafford the midfielder. But still no breakthrough yet, with the Bundesliga giants holding firm.

And journalist Fabrizio Romano has affirmed on the Herewegopodcast that, while Sancho would be content to stay at the Westfalenstadion, he has told Dortmund a move would make him ‘happy’.
