Transfer: Man United ready to let go of 19-year-old Aliou Traore
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, the French second division side Caen made an approach for him last week and United is 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 is considered favorites after making a £16.5m offer for the 6ft 4ins France U21 international.
