Solksjaer reveals Diallo will join Manchester United this January

Sat 02 January 2021 | 9:50

The Red Devils confirmed the £37m signature of Atalanta’s wonderkid in the summer, but the 18-year-old stayed in the Serie A side until a work permit could be granted for his move to Old Trafford.

However, the Ivorian only played 35 minutes for

Atalanta

this season, with their manager,

Gasperini

, preferring to give game time to prospects staying at the club.

However,

Diallo

will join the Red Devils u23 side to try to break into a

Manchester United

team that is currently sitting second in the league’s table after their 2-1 victory against

Aston Villa

.

Manchester United’s

manager doesn’t expect to have a busy transfer window at his club.

"Amad, we've had all the paperwork, I can't see any obstacles,"

Solskjaer said.

"Hope very soon he will be with us. Very excited to have him in. He'll need time to develop.

"Apart from that I'm not thinking too much about January."

Manchester United

have been unbeaten for 10 successive league games, since their loss to

Arsenal

at the beginning of November.

"Of course we are happy with what we are doing,"

Solskjaer said of Man Utd''s unbeaten league run.

"We have shown we have improved a lot in a year. We lost to Arsenal away last new year's day. We have improved immensely. We are getting fitter and fitter and stronger and stronger.

"These players have a great age. They are learning and are hungry to learn which is important. They come in every day with a hunger and desire to be the best on match day. They have been focused."
