Manchester United have confirmed a deal to sign Atalanta winger Amad Diallo.
The 18-year-old has been on United’s radar for the last three years and has been heavily scouted by the club’s Italian network, who rate him as one of the most exciting prospects in Europe.
The teenager has made just three Serie A appearances for Atalanta but United have seen enough to stump up £37.3m for his signature – £17m of which is based on achievable add-ons.
Diallo – also known as Traore – will join the club in January subject to gaining a work permit.
The winger is United’s third signing of the day following the arrivals of Alex Telles and Willy Kambwala.
The club hope to announced a deal for Edinson Cavani before the deadline closes but as he’s a free agent there is less pressure to officially confirm the deal.
A move for Ousmane Dembele has fallen through as United were unwilling to sign the Frenchman on a permanent basis and Barcelona were reluctant to let him leave on loan.
