Manchester United have a big season ahead of them as they are looking to battle for the Premier League, the Champions League and two domestic trophies.
They will want to bolster their squad and, according to Manchester Evening News and as tweeted by @utdreport, the Red Devils are exploring the possibility of signing Atalanta right-winger Amad Traore, who is not seen as an alternative to Jadon Sancho, and United have contacted the Serie A outfit.
The 18-year-old looks to have a lot of potential as he has managed 93 appearances in the youth ranks at the Bergamo-based club, scoring 37 goals and picking up 28 assists, per Transfermarkt. He has also made three appearances for the senior side and scored one goal.
That he is not seen as a Sancho alternative is good news, but it still is worrying some fans of the club and understandably so as he is a player in the same position as the Dortmund winger. Even though he is not deemed as an alternative to the 20-year-old, it is worth wondering how many wingers United feel that they need, especially if they still want Sancho.
Here is a portion of the feedback from Man United fans in response to the transfer links with Traore:

just watched some YouTube clips and confirmed he’s better than Sancho. Lets go

A joke, possibly to force Dortmund to release Sancho at a cheaper price perhaps

Very very good player

He’s a slick dribbler, got an eye for a pass and loves shooting from range. A great prospect but they can’t go from Sancho to him, cmon
