Man United is about to complete the final procedure to recruit Amad Diallo Traore from the club Atalanta in Serie A.
According to Sky Sports, Amad Diallo Traore has been granted Italian citizenship. This is the last condition for Man United to apply for a work permit in the UK for talent from the Ivory Coast. If nothing changes, Traore will join MU from January 2021.
Traore was contacted by MU in the summer of 2020. The Red half of Manchester agreed to pay £ 37.2 million to Atalanta in exchange for Traore’s signature. The basic transfer was completed in October and was closed when Traore successfully applied for a work permit in the UK.
Real Madrid’s Rodrygo Goes is leading the way with a fee of more than £ 40 million. As for the MU team, Traore is the most expensive U18 player. This striker broke Luke Shaw’s transfer record at MU (£ 30 million).
Traore debuted the Atalanta first team from the 2019/20 season
Traore played 3 matches, scored one goal. This season, Traore played 2 matches for Atalanta from the bench. Sky Sports believes that this is a risky transfer of MU because Traore’s ability needs more time to verify. The striker also does not have top-notch playing experience.
On December 2, Traore made his first Champions League appearance. Coach Atalanta put Traore on when the home team was 0-1. The appearance of Traore helps Atalanta’s gameplay flourish. This striker has some impressive dribbling situations, creating a feeling of excitement for MU fans. This may be the last time Traore wore Atalanta before joining MU.
Traore can be played in any position in attack. In the Atalanta youth team, Traore often played as the right striker. When joining MU, Traore will compete with Mason Greenwood, Juan Mata, and Daniel James for the chance to play.
According to Sky Sports, young talent Amad Diallo has received a European passport and is ready to fly to Manchester to complete the procedure to wear the “Red Devils”. At the end of the transfer window last summer, MU spent 21 million euros in exchange for Diallo’s signature from Atalanta.
