Ole Gunnar Solskjaer promised United fans one of the most exciting young players in world football with the arrival of Amad

The Red Devils have confirmed the £37million transfer of 18-year-old Diallo from Atalanta as their first January signing.

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.”

Diallo himself has admitted it is a dream come true to finally seal his move to Old Traford.

The winger – who is yet to decide on his shirt number – told the United website: “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.”

And finally, United’s wantaway keeper Sergio Romero is reportedly nearing a move to Boca Juniors.

The Manchester Evenings News claim the Argentinian has already said his goodbyes to his Red Devils teammates ahead of his Old Trafford exit.

The 33-year-old, who is out of contract this summer, is expected to end his six-year stint with the club in this month’s transfer window.

Romero has been training in Argentina and local reports in Buenos Aires claim he is keeping fit in the Argentinian capital ahead of a move to Boca.
