New Manchester United attacker Amad Diallo suggests that he will arrive in England in a matter of days.

New Manchester United attacker Amad Diallo has suggested that he will arrive in England in a matter of days by posting an image from inside a plane on social media.

The Red Devils have blocked Atalanta BC's attempts to keep the 18-year-old, who agreed a move to United over the summer, on loan for the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign.

On Sunday, Diallo posted a picture of a plane seat on Instagram, and according to the Manchester Evening News, the attacker is on his way to Rome to complete the final paperwork in relation to a visa.

The teenager will then allegedly fly to Manchester in the middle of next week, meaning that he should be at the club before the FA Cup clash with Watford on January 9.

Diallo, who was born in the Ivory Coast before moving to Italy at a young age, has made two substitute appearances for Atalanta during the 2020-21 campaign.

United will reportedly pay an initial €25m (£22.7m) for the right-sided attacker, but the deal could eventually rise to €40m (£35.5m) due to various add-ons.
