– The teenage sensation is now on his way to the Premier League club to seal the deal
– Transfer fee for the teenage sensation is expected to rise to £37million including add-ons.
Manchester United summer signing, Amad Diallo, who is expected to complete his switch to the Premier League club has hinted he is already heading to the Old Trafford.
The 18-year-old Ivorian has posted a picture of himself on a plane as he looks to be heading to England to complete his switch, SunSports claim.
It comes after manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed he expected the January signing to link up with his new team-mates ‘very soon’.
According to Manchester Evening News, the 18-year-old Atalanta star flew to Rome to complete the final round of his paperwork and will then travel to Old Trafford in the middle of the week.
He has proven to be one of the hottest prospects in the game last season when he performed excellently in the UEFA Youth League.
The exciting Ivorian winger has been noticed by United scouts since he was age 15 and the club have been monitoring his progress ever since.
Diallo had a taste of the first-team action for Atalanta in Serie A last season and capped his three appearances with a goal.
He became the first player born in 2002 to score a goal in Serie A following Atalanta’s 7-1 demolition of Udinese last season.
Famous football transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano has disclosed that the youngster has now been granted a passport to travel to England.
It was gathered that after paperwork and other formalities are completed, the transfer fee for the teenager is expected to rise to £37million including add-ons.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Gary Neville has urged Man United to sign a centre-back if they want to contend for the Premier League title this season.
The Red Devils moved to second of the table following their 1-0 win over Wolves at Old Trafford and would have the opportunity to go level on points with Liverpool if they beat Aston Villa on New Year’s Day.
In recent games, Harry Maguire and Lindelof have partnered well at the heart on United’s defence while Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe have also assisted when called upon.
With the January window officially open, it does not look like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would request for a defender.
