Atalanta ask Manchester United to delay Diallo transfer

 The Serie A club hope they can keep the young winger for the second half of the season

Atalanta have asked Manchester United to delay Amad Diallo’s move to Old Trafford and allow him to stay at the Serie A club until the end of the season.

The Red Devils confirmed the signing of 18-year-old Diallo over the summer for a fee which could reach £37 million ($48m), with the winger staying at Atalanta until a work permit could be granted for his move to Old Trafford.

Speaking after United’s 2-1 win over Aston Villa on New Year’s Day, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said the teenager’s move to the club was imminent, with confirmation expected in the coming days.
