Manchester United linked with surprise move for former Chelsea man
Bertrand Traore has impressed at Lyon
Tuesday, November 7, 2017
Manchester United are reportedly plotting a January move for former Chelsea starlet Bertrand Traore, according to reports in France.
With Jose Mourinho still looking to add a wide forward to his ranks, French football magazine Onze Mundial claim the United boss has turned his attention to former Chelsea man Traore.
The Burkina Faso international was handed his Chelsea debut by Mourinho, but left after failing to nail down a regular first-team place, initially to Ajax on loan, and then in a permanent £6m switch to Lyon over the summer.
Traore has since impressed in the French top-flight and has been linked with a return to the Premier League in the near future.
The 22-year-old has netted six times in 16 appearances for the French giants this season, increasing his valuation as Europe's top clubs begin to take note.
