MAN. UNITED paid £37.2 million to land the ATALANTA wonderkid on Deadline Day in October, and now he’s joining his new team-mates…
Full Name: Amad Diallo
Country: Ivory Coast
Boots: Nike Mercurial
Diallo was born in Ivory Coast before moving to Italy when he was ten years old! He joined the Atalanta academy in 2005 and soon started making a name for himself. He grabbed 31 goals and assists combined for the youth team in 2018-19, and started training with the senior side in 2019-20!
He was handed his senior debut in October 2019 in the 7-1 victory over Udinese, and busted net just four minutes after coming off the bench! That made him the first player born in 2002 to score a goal in Serie A and the youngest player ever to score on his Serie A debut – aged just 17!
The wonderkid winger’s most impressive attribute is definitely his demon dribbling – he constantly looks to beat his opponent when he receives the ball! He’s proven in youth football that he also has an end product, so he’ll set up a team-mate or score at the end of one of his epic runs!
