Not Rodgriguez, highly coveted star signs 4-year deal with Man United

While Jose Mourinho is on the search for established players, Manchester United are also on the look out for starlets that would be transformed into world class players.

According to latest report, Man United have completed the signing of 16-year-old French starlet Aliou Badara.

Badara has been on the transfer radar of Man United and we understand that he was even close to sealing a United deal earlier this month after agreeing personal terms. However, he has now put pen to paper for the deal.

The former French Under-16 starlet signed a four-year deal with United amid strong interest from Juventus and Manchester City. He is expected to spend his first year at the academy of United before agreeing a three-year deal with the first-team.

He will turn 17 in January and the plays from the middle of the pack. The youngster is highly rated and has been tipped to do exploilts in the near future.

Jose Mourinho is known for favoring established players but Marcos Rashford was an exception – if Badara develops well, we could see him sooner in the colours of Man United even under the watch of Jose Mourinho.

Meanwhile, in other Manchester United transfer news, Mourinho is closing in on a deal for Alvaro Morata.
