Manchester United youngster Aliou Traore has named Paul Pogba as a big influence on him at the club.

The academy player has opened up on the conversations he has with the French World cup winner behind the scenes at Carrington.

The French midfielder, 19, is a highly rated prospect who has been playing for the club’s Under-23s in the past three seasons.

He can play through the middle or down the left flank and has impressed in recent campaigns.

The player has explained his relationship with Pogba in an interview with France-based media outlet RMC Sport:

“I talk to him a bit, especially when I go up to training with the professionals. He’s a bit like on social networks, a bit crazy! He takes care of the French. There is Hannibal [Mejbri] and Noam [Emran] with me.”
