The 18 year old is highly rated within the corridors of Old Trafford however the club have been unable to agree terms for a contract extension and the player has been free to talk to other clubs since January with Juventus closing in.

United had promised the box-to-box midfielder more first-team opportunities this season however the French U19 star has made just one appearance for United this season, which has led to his growing frustration.

The return of Paul Scholes to the United midfield is the straw that apparently broke the camel’s back and despite the efforts of the club’s senior stars, Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs, the players is set to finalise a move to the Old Lady.

United will only receive the minimum FIFA-decided training compensation, paid to clubs who lose young talents at an early age, which is thought to be less than £500,000.
