Amad Diallo was in first team training again for Manchester United ahead of the weekend’s tie with Everton.

Diallo was pictured with teammate Paul Pogba, recreating a picture the pair took together several years ago.

The picture similar to a snap Diallo shared of him meeting Paul Pogba when he was a lot younger.

United’s official website reported the picture below was taken around 2015, possibly a little earlier, with specifics on the exact date a little sketchy.

The one above was taken in Thursday’s training session at Carrington, and comparing the two, it shows how much Diallo has grown along with his career progression, and Pogba’s ever-changing haircuts of course.

Will Diallo be in the squad this weekend?

Solskjaer has a decision to make here, which will become apparent over the next 24 hours. United have an under-23 game tonight against Blackburn Rovers at 7pm.


Diallo played for the under-23s last weekend and had a star turn, scoring two goals in a 6-3 victory.

If he is not in the team then it will strongly suggest Solskjaer is planning to involve him in the matchday squad against Everton.

What could happen is a bit of a compromise. Diallo could play for the under-23s, miss the Everton game, and then be part of the United first team to face West Ham in the FA Cup next Tuesday.

Solskjaer is clearly keeping a close eye on him, and wants the young talent to spend as much time around top players like Pogba as possible.
