1 min read

Manchester United fans watched Amad Diallo in action for the first time since his move to Old Trafford was announced during Atalanta’s defeat against Hellas Verona on Saturday.

The MEN understands United agreed to pay £19m up front, with £18.1m in add-ons, for the 18-year-old on deadline day of the summer transfer window.

Diallo will move to England in January with United still working on securing a work permit for the youngster.

United fans have been forced to wait patiently to see their new prospect in action with Diallo making his first Serie A appearance of the season on Saturday.

Diallo played just 13 minutes off the bench but supporters were impressed with what they saw in his brief cameo.

Atalanta star Papu Gomez has been impressed by Diallo in Italy and compared the youngster to his countryman Lionel Messi which did little to supress excitement among United fans.

Gomez said said: “He’s a future star, trust me. During our training sessions he plays like Messi!

“You can’t stop him, he’s unbelievable, our centre-backs have serious problems when Traoré is on the pitch. He’s fantastic!”
