United youngster Traore completes loan for 20/21

Monday 17 August 2020 10:00

Manchester United midfielder Aliou Traore will spend the 2020/21 season on loan at Stade Malherbe Caen.

The 19-year-old has made the temporary move to the Ligue 2 club to gain invaluable experience of first-team football in his native France. 

Watch Aliou Traore's goal at Norwich's Carrow Road earlier this year.

Traore joined United in 2017 from Paris Saint-Germain and featured 27 times for the Under-18s before progressing into the Under-23s. 

The Frenchman played 14 times for Neil Wood’s side last season as the team finished second in Premier League 2 and were subsequently promoted to Premier League 2 Division One.

Traore’s move sees the first temporary departure of what is expected to be a busy loan period for the Academy at Under-23s level. 

The club will continue to prioritise individual development and provide the most challenging and beneficial environment for each player.

For some, this will mean experiencing senior football at another club whilst younger players will regularly test themselves in older age groups.

Everyone at United wishes Aliou well as he continues his development during his loan spell at the Stade Michel d'Ornano.
