Amad Diallo could be handed his Manchester United debut next month, reveals Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Amad Diallo could break into Manchester United‘s first-team squad as early as next month, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed.

United agreed a £37million deal with Atalanta for the Ivorian teenager, 18, in October, but Diallo only began training at Carrington last week after being granted a visa.

Although the young winger is working with the first-team group, the plan was to play him in the Under 23s – as United have done with another teenage signing, Facundo Pellistri.

However, Solskjaer believes Diallo could be ready for senior action sooner than he thought after making a good impression in training.

Asked if it could now be only four or five weeks before Diallo is in line for his debut, the United boss said: ‘It might be quicker than that. I can’t see it being too long until he’s in the squad.

‘He’s definitely settled down well. The players have taken to him, he’s a good character, polite, smiley boy who works really hard.

‘He’s doing his sessions and getting used to us. There’s always a period of adjustment needed but he’s settling in well.

‘He can handle the ball, he’s enjoyed training and he makes a difference in training, which is quite remarkable at his age.’
