Manchester United have signed winger Amad Diallo from Italian side Atalanta, with the 18-year-old Ivorian putting pen to paper on a contract until June 2025, the Premier League club said on Thursday.
“As a club, we have followed Diallo 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,” United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.
“It will take time for Diallo Amad to adapt but his speed, vision and fantastic dribbling ability will stand him in good stead to make the transition.
“He’s a player with all of the raw attributes that are needed to be an important player for Manchester United in the years to come.”
“I am hugely ambitious and there is so much that I want to achieve in the game.
Diallo said when I spoke to the manager, I knew that I had joined the perfect club,” he said.
“I have had time to prepare for this move, both physically and mentally, and I have worked really hard to be ready to make the step up to this amazing club” Diallo added.
