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…

FACTFILE
Full Name: 
Amad Diallo
Age: 18
Country: Ivory Coast
Position: Winger
Boots: Nike Mercurial

 

TEENAGE TALENT!

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!

RECORD BREAKER!

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!

PLAYING STYLE!

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!
