Diallo’s Man United stint
Amad Diallo completed a £37m move to Old Trafford from Serie A outfit Atalanta last summer, with the winger eventually joining up with his new club in January.
Despite the hefty price-tag attached to the Ivorian, Diallo is yet to establish himself as a regular in United’s senior ranks.
Though to be fair to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co., Diallo had made just five senior appearances for Atalanta before he linked up with United.
As for his time in Manchester so far, Diallo has featured for a grand total of seven minutes for United’s first-team, with that appearance coming last week in the Europa League against Real Sociedad.
United won that tie 4-0. And given the fairly comfortably lead they now boast heading into the second leg, Solskjaer has been asked if Diallo could be handed a start this Thursday against the Spanish outfit. You can read more about that here:

Dan James praises Diallo
Despite his very limited minutes so far, though, Diallo looks to have made a very positive impression on a number of his teammates.
Both Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire were full of praise for Diallo recently, comparing him to Manchester City winger, Riyad Mahrez.
And now, Daniel James is the latest senior United star to heap praise on the 18-year-old:
“Amad has come in and, as a young lad, he’s been unbelievable in training.
“I mean his professionalism [is very good] and he’s settled in straight away, I’d say, do you know what I mean? We see his quality in training, he has unbelievable feet, but we’ve seen he also presses well and wins the ball back, which is exactly what we want.”
