Man Utd new boy Amad Diallo trains with squad ahead of potential baptism of fire against Liverpool after £37m transfer

AMAD DIALLO has been training with Manchester United's first-team ahead of the Liverpool clash.

The winger, 18, completed his £37million switch to Old Trafford from Atalanta earlier this month.

Diallo – who will wear the No19 shirt – was shown around United's training facilities on Wednesday.

The Ivorian star then trained with new team-mates for the first time on Thursday.

He was seen working closely with Mason Greenwood during the session at Carrington.

The Red Devils shared a snap of him in action alongside the caption: "Great to see you settling in, @AmadDiallo_19."

United – who are top of the table – are preparing for this weekend's trip to Anfield.

The match is likely to come too soon for Diallo – who made just five senior appearances for Atalanta.

But the winger has claimed he is eager to learn and progress under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Speaking on the club website, he said: "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."

He added: "To be honest I cannot wait, I’m so excited at the prospect of working with these fantastic people at such a great club.

"This adventure is about to start and I’m really, really excited and over the moon."
