According to coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he, as well as Man Utd’s scouting department, have watched Amad Diallo over the years and appreciate what this young talent can do.
After 3 months of waiting, Man Utd is finally about to get the service of Amad Diallo, a contract that costs them 37 million pounds at the summer market of 2020. Despite the 18-year-old “prodigy”, he has not left a sign. In particular in the colors of Atalanta’s first team shirt, the Red Devils still highly appreciate his talent and potential.
Man Utd accepts “gambling” with Amad Diallo
Time will test the belief that Man Utd has for Diallo, but since he has not arrived at Old Trafford, the young talent of the Ivory Coast has received winged words from the new teacher Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian strategist shares about the rookie of the red half Manchester:
“Amad is a young man we have been following for the past few years. We have seen him play in the UEFA Youth League (youth league for clubs participating in the Champions League). Of course, Amad has very special qualities.
Amad has very good balance, excellent game reading and impressive ability to make decisions for a player his age. This is a guy that we are very excited about to help him develop further. We know Amad has to learn when moving to a new country, adapting to a new style of football, so will be patient.
I think Amad can play in a variety of positions. The right wing is probably the position he plays the most and since then there is a ball that cuts in with his left foot. However, in the Champions League, Amad played on the left flank for Atalanta. Let him have time to find the best position for himself here ”.
Currently, Diallo is waiting for a visa to fly to Manchester to join his new teammates. The Ivory Coast’s “prodigy” has accepted the number of shirts in the first team of 19.
