Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly spoke directly with new-signing Amad Diallo and told him he wants him to join the team straight away.
Diallo, 18, who operates primarily as a right-sided attacker is widely regarded as one of, if not, the, most gifted youngster among all of Europe’s top leagues.
The talented teenager who possesses some incredible technical ability agreed to join United from Atalanta during deadline day of last summer’s transfer window, the agreement was announced on the club’s official website.
However, despite the exciting deal being officially announced, Diallo was forced to remain in Italy for another six-months after work permit and passport complications meant the move could not be finalised before the January window.
Now in January, news that Diallo was on his way to complete his long-awaited United move was recently confirmed by journalist Fabrizio Romano.
