The 18-year-old Ivorian winger has put pen-to-paper on a five-year deal with the Manchester outfit.

Diallo made two appearances for Atalanta this season, including one in the UEFA Champions League against FC Midtjylland last month.

Statement:

Manchester United is pleased to confirm Amad Diallo's arrival from Atalanta has been finalised. The Ivorian winger has signed a contract to the end of June 2025, with the option of an extra year.

When an agreement between the clubs was first announced on 5 October 2020 - deadline day at the end of the summer transfer window - it was subject to a medical, work-permit and personal terms.

These steps in the process have been completed, and an application has been made for a visa. Once this has been issued, Diallo will be cleared to travel to Manchester and to train with and play for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
