Manchester United new boy Amad Diallo was grinning from ear to ear as he was photographed at the club following his recent arrival.

The 18-year-old could not hide his joy as he was shown around the club's facilities before conducting interviews at the Carrington training complex on Wednesday. When an agreement between the clubs was first announced on October 5, 2020 - deadline day at the end of the summer transfer window - it was subject to a medical, work-permit and personal terms.

'After waiting since the summer, it is finally a dream come true to complete my move to Manchester United, ' said Diallo last week. "This adventure is about to start and I'm really, really excited and over the moon". That is my aim and goal.

'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, ' said Solskjaer.

And while he describe the last few months as "a little bit strange" as he waited to make the switch from Atalanta, Diallo has already established exactly what he wants to achieve while at Old Trafford.

"It's been a little bit unusual these last few months", says Diallo. I'm ready to help every player. "I'll be asking him for advice and will be listening to all he says, and also the other players who speak French and Italian like [Paul] Pogba for example, he will be another good reference point for me".

"Eric will be a definite reference point for me. They have always supported me and have always been there for me, so huge thanks to them of course and it's thanks to them that I am here now".

'It's important we give him that time to settle in, if it's in the Under 23s or if he looks ready to go into the first team, I don't know yet'.

"I'll always be grateful to Atalanta, they're fantastic people starting from the coach to the president of the club".
