Manchester United supporters are growing even more excited after Amad Diallo’s latest social media update.
The young winger is finally set to team up with the Red Devils this week.
Back on transfer deadline day for the summer window, United agreed a deal for the Atalanta teenager that could reach £37m.
Due to work permit issues, though, the 18-year-old remained with the Serie A outfit for the first half of the season.
Atalanta have requested to keep Diallo on loan until the end of the season, but United have rejected that propsect as they want the attacker now.
On Friday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that his passport had arrived, ahead of his imminent Premier League move.
On Sunday, Diallo flew to Rome to complete paperwork and to attend the Ivory Coast Embassy there in order to finalise his visa, posting the update on his social media account.
And he has been active again on social media, captioning his latest post: “Beautiful sun today”.
The post shared on Twitter shows Diallo boarding a jet while wearing a protective face mask as he edged nearer arriving at Old Trafford.
Diallo is not expected in Manchester on Monday, but he is due to fly to the UK this week.
As a result, excited United supporters are hoping they may get a first glimpse of Diallo in the matchday squad on Saturday when Watford visit Old Trafford for their FA Cup third round tie.
One United fan replied to Diallo’s latest post with: “Amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad - Welcome to the biggest club in the world
Another wished him well and replied: “Safe travels Amad”.
A third put: “Welcome to Manchester United, Amad. The fans are eagerly waiting to see you grow as a player. We will always have your back.”
“I WANNA SEE YOU VS WATFORD,” another added.
And a finalk supporter said: “Can’t wait for you to join the lads and get started on your journey to becoming one of the finest wingers to grace the English Premier League. Welcome to Manchester United Amad Diallo”.
Despte Solskjaer’s intention to integrate Diallo within his first-team squad straight away, he is unlikely to figure against the Championship club this weekend.
Diallo only played for Atalanta’s senior side twice in the first half of the campaign, once in the Champions League and once in Serie A, and both appearances were from off the bench.
