Manchester United are working on a permanent deal for Amad Traore, with the winger expected to stay at Atalanta until January.
The MEN understands United are still optimistic of signing Traore and are continuing discussions in an attempt to conclude a deal, either in the January transfer window or in the summer.
United have been working on a deal for the Atalanta winger for around a month but have encountered issues in arranging a visa. This means that the youngster could end up staying at his current club until January, where United could complete the deal if they fail to do so before the end of play on transfer deadline-day today.
So, just how big a talent is Traore? And, what are his best attributes?
To give United fans an idea of what to expect from Traore, if he does sign for the club, we assessed his attributes on FIFA 21. This is what they told us.
Amad Traore’s FIFA 21 rating assessed
Overall rating: 60/100
Potential rating: 80/100
Best FIFA 21 attributes: Acceleration (77), sprint speed (77), balance (77), agility (73), dribbling (68), ball control (66), finishing (64).
Amad Traore looks a real prospect, according to his FIFA 21 profile.
The 17-year-old has an overall rating of 60 out of 100 on FIFA 21 at the start of the game, which would put him a long way off the United first team. However, with a potential rating of 80 out of 100, FIFA 21 suggests that the forward has plenty of potential to improve over the coming years.
Traore’s best attributes are all in the movement attribute category, with the youngster given impressive speed, agility and balance attributes.
The youngster also has very decent dribbling, ball control and finishing attributes for a player of his age, which bodes very well for the future.
With Traore’s FIFA 21 profile as it is, the game suggests that he could become at least a squad player for United over the coming years.
However, with FIFA 21 Career Mode having a fluid potential rating system, the forward could yet end up becoming one of the very best players in the world in your Career Mode save.
