Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an extremely encouraging update on Manchester United’s attempts to finalize the arrival of Amad Diallo from Atalanta.
As the BBC previously reported, Man United is increasingly confident that he will be able to sign and seal the deal to sign Diallo that was initially agreed in October. The report mentions that the 18-year-old’s transfer is worth an estimated £ 19 million, which will be a small price to pay if he realizes his full potential.
However, it seems that Man United fans, who will be eager to see his newest acquisition in action, will not have to wait too long to see him don the jersey. Speaking after United’s win over Villa, Solskjaer confirmed that Diallo’s deal is likely to be completed as Samuel Luckhurst reports.
Solskjaer on Amad Diallo: “We’ve had all the paperwork, I don’t really see any obstacles so I hope it won’t be long until he’s with us.” #mufc

Although rival fans will hardly be trembling at the prospect of United adding a teenager to their squad mid-season, just consider how much of an impact Mason Greenwood had last period at the same age. Diallo could be the injection of energy United need to give them a second-half lead.
