Teenage wonderkid Amad Diallo signs for Manchester United

As confirmed by the club’s official site, Manchester United have completed the signing of Atalanta wonderkid Amad Diallo.

The Ivorian wonderkid’s contract runs until 2025. United also retain the option of extending it by a further year.

Although an agreement between the clubs was first announced on 5 October 2020, it was subject to a medical, work permit and personal terms.

Once his Visa is issued, Diallo will be cleared to travel to Manchester and train with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.

“I believe he is one of the most exciting young prospects in the game.”

The Norwegian is excited to sign who he considers as one of the most talented young players in the world.

Solskjaer has high hopes for Diallo and believes he has what it takes to become an important player for the club. Still a raw player, he will however first need to fine-tune his gifts.

“He is a player with all of the raw attributes that are needed to be an important player for Manchester United in the years to come.”

The player too is excited to join United. He took to Instagram to post a picture of himself in a United jersey claiming he could not wait to start.
