Midfielder Aliou Traore has signed a deal with Italian side Parma, reports Fabrizio Romano.
Traore has been a free agent since being released by Manchester United on June 30.
Traore was one of eight players released by United at the end of June. He is now the seventh to find a new club.
Only veteran goalkeeper Sergio Romero surprisingly remains as a free agent.
United signed Aliou Traore to a pro deal in January 2018 after he quit Paris Saint-Germain a year earlier.
He stood out in the under-18s as a physically gifted young player who drew comparisons to Paul Pogba.
Traore though was unable to kick on and despite flashes of potential in the under-23s, he was outshone by the likes of James Garner and Dylan Levitt.
Last summer he expressed a desire to go and play competitive football, and France Football linked him to both Celtic and Rangers.
Traore instead ended up at French second division side Caen, and despite a fairly impressive showing against PSG in the cup, his spell there was generally underwhelming.
Traore played 19 league games for Caen, but completed 90 minutes only twice and after March he did not feature. It was not a surprise when United released him.
Now he has a fresh start with Serie B side Parma, who were relegated from Serie A last season.
It is unclear whether he will go straight into their side or feature in the development squad, but Traore will be keen to make the most of his new start.
