Manchester United will sign Bolton Wanderers prodigy Max Broughton ahead of Premier League champions Chelsea, according to reports in England.
The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils will sign the 16-year-old despite interest from the champions as Manchester United look to capitalise on their close ties with Bolton.

According to the Sun, the Red Devils have also completed deals to sign French youngster Aliou Traore and Belgian striker Largie Ramazani to bolster their youth team ranks.
