Manchester United expect to complete Diallo signing in January

Manchester United are ‘confident’ they will be able to complete the £19 million pound signing of 18-year-old winger, Amad Diallo.

Juventus had previously been one of many clubs interested in Diallo before United swooped in for the Ivorian youngster.

The Red Devils agreed a deal to sign the 18-year-old in October, however, they allowed him to stay at Atlanta for the first part of the season.

Diallo has been a constant feature on the bench for Atlanta this season, but he has only made 2 appearances for the Serie A side.

He is expected to be involved for Atlanta for the last time on Wednesday night versus Bologna.

Brexit means new rules governing the signing of overseas players – the points-based Governing Body Endorsement agreement – start from 31 December.

The Governing Body Endorsement agreement has been agreed by English football’s governing bodies and the Home Office.

As Diallo now has an Italian passport, United feel that will help him through the process, which was announced earlier this month.
