Manchester United working on securing a work permit for Amad Diallo
United signed the Atalanta youngster in a deal worth £19million, potentially rising to £37m on deadline day last month. His arrival was scheduled for New Year’s day so that we can help get him a work permit.
Despite the progress we have made, the deal is not straightforward. This is because of the issues concerning the youngster’s passport.
The 18-year-old is one of the best young talents to come out of the Serie A. Born in the Ivory Coast, Diallo came to Italy at a young age.
He has impressed at various youth levels for Atalanta, who are said to have the best youth setup in the country. United have been aware of his talents for a few years now.
The club has kept a keen eye on the player’s development since encountering him in 2016 at an Under-15 match. It would appear we still have kinks to work out before finalizing the deal.
According to the report, United’s move for the player is partly fuelled to ensure the club can land him before post-Brexit regulations come into force.
Under the UK’s European Union membership, clubs could sign a scholar or professional with an EU passport over the age of 16. Now that the UK has left the EU, rules as part of the transition period end on January 31.

Diallo has not played for Atalanta so far this season. Diallo has been an unused substitute in six of Atalanta’s 10 games.
The youngster was not the only youth prospect signed on deadline day. Uruguayan starlet Facundo Pellistri also made the switch to United from Penarol.
