Amad Diallo has been pictured training with Manchester United for the first time since his transfer was finalised.

Diallo was unveiled and photographed wearing United’s colours earlier this week.

Now pictures are available of him at Carrington training with his new teammates.

Diallo told the club website: “I’m over the moon to be here. I’m so excited to start here at Manchester United. It’s a dream come true and I can’t wait to start and play with the guys.

I’m only young, only 18, so there is still a long way ahead for me. I want to learn and progress and I will be listening to the more experienced players here and the coach, and I’ll do my best and work hard to succeed.

Solskjaer will provide an update on Diallo at his press conference today at 1.30pm.

 

It is unclear if the new number 19 will travel with the squad to Liverpool to gain experience, even get a spot on the bench, or be left behind.

There is an under-23 game on Monday too, in which Diallo could feature.

How Solskjaer feels he did in his first training session could impact the young winger’s initial steps at United.
