The Premier League side agreed a £37 million fee with Atalanta during the summer transfer window but the youngster was not able to complete his transfer because of work permit issues.
According to reports, the wonderkid has now received his work permit and he will complete the transfer next month.
The 18-year-old is highly rated across Europe and it will be interesting to see if he can establish himself as a first-team player for Manchester United this season.
The Red Devils could use some pace and flair in the white areas and Amad Diallo would freshen up Manchester united’s attack during the second half of the season.
The likes of Daniel James have failed to impress Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season and it will be interesting to see if the Manchester United manager is prepared to give the youngster an opportunity to prove himself with the first-team squad.
The 18-year-old is a prodigious young talent with a massive future ahead of him and he needs to play regular first-team football in order to continue his development.
Manchester United must look to give him the platform he needs right now or else a loan move would be ideal for the player.
The Red Devils have two exceptional young players leading their attack in Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood. Amad Diallo could complete the attacking triumvirate in future.
