Solskjaer offers fresh update on £18.7m Diallo to Man United transfer

United said then that they had been keeping tabs on the teenager from Under-15 level and that Diallo would join “at a later date, subject to medical, personal terms and work permit”.

The deal struck with Atalanta was understood to be worth €41million (£36.6m), which will see United pay €21m (£18.7m) up front.

And Solskjaer confirmed after the 2-1 win over Aston Villa on New Year’s Day that sent his side level on points with Liverpool at the Premier League summit that he did not foresee any obstacles with regards to the completion of the move, with transfer rules in the UK now set to be impacted by Brexit.

“Amad, we’ve had all the paperwork, I can’t see any obstacles,” Solskjaer said.

“We hope very soon he will be with us. We are very excited to have him in. He’ll need time to develop.”

However, Solskjaer does not seem to be desperate for any further signings in the immediate future, adding: “Apart from that I’m not thinking too much about January.”
