Amad Diallo has been pictured in a Manchester United shirt after finally completing his move from Atalanta.

United agreed a £37m deal for Diallo in the summer, but the terms stated that he would spend the first half of the season with Atalanta.

Diallo, 18, has now officially joined up with his new team-mates, and is expected to be part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans as he targets silverware this term.

The Ivorian has also been seen in a club shirt for the first time, which is sure to thrill fans across the world.

Diallo shared a picture on his Instagram story wearing the shirt, giving supporters a glimpse of what is to come.

After officially completing his move, Diallo said: “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.”

Meanwhile, Solskjaer added that United have been watching Diallo for years, and was delighted to finally introduce him to his squad.

He said: “As a club, we have followed 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.

“Manchester United has such a proud history of developing young players and everything is in place to enable Amad to reach his potential here.

“It will take time for him to adapt but his speed, vision and fantastic dribbling ability will stand him in good stead to make the transition. He is a player with all of the raw attributes that are needed to be an important player for Manchester United in the years to come.”
