Mercato: the Top 10 most expensive African players in history
The kid who arrived in Italy in 2015 with his family only needed six minutes against Udinese (27 October 2019), in his first professional appearance, to open his account in the Italian Serie A at the end of the season….
17 years and 3 months!
It should also be noted, that the gifted Ivorian would only join the “Red Devils” next winter, due to formalities related to obtaining, a work permit in England.
If such a move were to be officially confirmed, Amad Traoré, whose elder brother Hamed Junior Traoré (Sassuolo) is known on the Ivory Coast side, would impose himself at only 18 years old as the 10th most expensive African player in history!
