Manchester [UK]: Mannounced that Aliou Traore will spend the 2020/21 season on loan at Stade Malherbe Caen.
Manchester United on Monday “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,” Manchester United said in a statement.
Traore had joined Manchester United in 2017 from Paris Saint-Germain and featured 27 times for the Under-18s before progressing into the Under-23s.
