Manchester United have completed the signing of Atalanta winger Amad Diallo on a four-and-a-half-year contract.
The deal, which will cost United £19million and up to £18m in add-ons, has gone through after Diallo passed a medical and agreed personal terms.
The 18-year-old Ivorian has secured a work permit and will travel to the UK once his visa is issued shortly.
‘After waiting since the summer, it is finally a dream come true to complete my move to Manchester United,’
‘I am hugely ambitious and there is so much that I want to achieve in the game; when I spoke to the manager I knew that I had joined the perfect club.
‘This is a really exciting squad with so many great players, I can promise that I will work hard every day to learn from them and give everything to develop my game.
‘The coaches have been fantastic since I signed, we have been in touch regularly and they have already given me a lot of great advice.
‘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.’
