Man Utd issue statement confirming Amad Diallo transfer as new minor hold up detailed

Manchester United have confirmed that Amad Diallo has joined the club from Atalanta as he becomes their first signing of the January transfer window. A deal, which could rise to £37million, was agreed on deadline day in October for the Ivorian wonderkid, subject to a medical, work-permit and personal terms.

The Red Devils have now confirmed the deal is done as Diallo sets his sights on meeting his new team-mates.

United have confirmed that Diallo won’t be able to fly to Manchester just yet though.

That’s because he is currently waiting for a visa but all the relevant paperwork has now been submitted ahead of his new chapter.

A club statement read: “Manchester United is pleased to confirm Amad Diallo’s arrival from Atalanta has been finalised. The Ivorian winger has signed a contract to the end of June 2025, with the option of an extra year.

“When an agreement between the clubs was first announced on 5 October 2020 – deadline day at the end of the summer transfer window – it was subject to a medical, work-permit and personal terms.

“These steps in the process have been completed, and an application has been made for a visa. Once this has been issued, Diallo will be cleared to travel to Manchester and to train with and play for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.”
