The Atalanta star was signed in the summer transfer window but the actual transfer was always going to happen this month instead.
Diallo was one of United’s more expensive purchases but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won’t be able to make use of him until now.
Even that is under consideration as it’s believed the young winger will be given time to settle into his new surroundings.
Diallo posted an image showing he’s on a flight and Romano agrees fans should be excited with what’s coming.
Amad Diallo is now flying to Rome. He’ll complete paperworks and documents to join #mufc, then when everything will be completed [in the next few days] he’ll fly to Manchester. 🔴 #ManUtd @Amaddiallo79 pic.twitter.com/sTQ4BjBuXR
The Red Devils have needed a right-winger for a while now so Diallo’s timing couldn’t be better but that depends on if he can hit the ground running or not.
There has been talk of Atalanta’s desire to loan him back but it’s believed Solskjaer isn’t keen on that idea at all.
This means Diallo should be around the fringes of the first-team, perhaps even making the odd appearance here or there.
He is coming into the perfect environment at the minute as Manchester United are doing well in the league and there won’t be too much pressure on him to perform.
