Manchester United have finalised the £19m signing of Ivory Coast winger Amad Diallo from Italian side Atalanta.

The deal for the 18-year-old includes a further £18.2m in add-ons and he has signed a contract until June 2025, with the option of an extra year.

United agreed a deal to sign Diallo in October.

Diallo is the first player to be signed and registered under post-Brexit rules. The paperwork over his move was submitted just after midnight on New Year’s Day and was approved the same day.

He needed governing body exemption before he could apply for a UK visa, which he did in Rome earlier this week.

Diallo will fly to England once it is approved and will not have to quarantine as he was part of Atalanta’s ‘bubble’.
