Manchester United announce Amad Diallo’s £37million move from Atalanta

Manchester United have today confirmed the signing of Atalanta winger Amad Diallo on a four-year deal.

The 18-year old has finally moved to Old Trafford after the two clubs agreed on a deal last October. The deal was all dependant on Diallo being able to obtain a work permit, which has now been obtained. 

The deal will cost Manchester United around £19m with £18m in add-ons, potentially taking the deal to £37m. The club took to their official Twitter account to show off their new signing to their fans.

This is a signing for the future by United with Diallo making two substitute appearances this season. Interestingly, the winger has made just five first-team appearances since his debut in 2019, scoring once.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær has spoken about the deal, he said: “As a club, we have followed Amad for a number of years and having watched him myself, I believe he is one of the most exciting young prospects in the game.

“Manchester United has such a proud history of developing young players and everything is in place to enable Amad to reach his potential here.”
