INSIDER: Serie A have lost future star in Man Utd signing Diallo

Manchester United have pulled off a coup in signing Atalanta winger Armand Diallo Traore.

Diallo will head to Old Trafford in January with United agreeing an initial €25m deal with Serie A side Atalanta.

Italian journalist Michele Criscitiello said: “I tried in every way to suggest [Diallo] to Italian clubs. I was convinced he could make a difference everywhere.

“We are in the presence of a boy who is still very young, but with impressive growth potential.

“I was able to follow him for a long time, and I'm convinced he will explode in the short term. Despite my insistence, no Italian team has really focused on Diallo.

“The result? The player is gone to Manchester United for a total sum of €40m. Serie A has lost a player destined to become one of the best in his role."
