United add Diallo to team

Former Atalanta winger signs for £27 million

On the final day of the transfer window, Manchester United was by far the busiest.

18-year-old winger Amad Diallo is the latest to come to Old Trafford following defender Alex Telles and striker Edinson Cavani.

The deal is worth £27 million, plus bonuses.

He’s considered Serie A’s best prospect despite only got 24 minutes of senior experience.

In March he was the first player born in 2002 to score in the Italian top-flight.

Atalanta captain Alejandro Gomez recently said the Ivorian teen “plays like Messi” in training.

In 2018-19 he had 18 goals and 13 assists in 42 games for the Primavera under-17 team.

Don’t expect to see him in United colors anytime soon though.

Diallo still needs a work permit in order to play in the UK and is subject to a medical exam.

It’s expected he’ll be able to join the club in January. (JSL)
