Manchester United have announced their third signing of the summer’s deadline day after agreeing a deal to bring right-winger Amad Diallo to Old Trafford in January from Italian side Atalanta.
Diallo, 18, is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most promising talents after already being likened to world-class superstar Lionel Messi by Papu Gomez.
The talented teenager will undoubtedly cause instant excitement among the United faithful who absolutely love their youth talent, it’s just a shame we’ll have to wait a few months before we can see him in action.
Diallo already has silverware to his name after winning three major youth titles including the Italian youth double (league and Supercoppa) during the 2019-20 season.
Traoré is one of the top young talents here in Italy. Atalanta have the best Academy so far.
Papu Gomez told about him: “He’s a future star, trust me. During our trainings he seems like Messi! You can’t stop him”.
He played 25 minutes in Serie A and scored one goal. 🔴 #MUFC
