According to the latest episode of transfer insider Fabrizio Romano’s ‘Here we Go’ podcast, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer FaceTimed new signing Amad Diallo Traore.

It’s claimed that Solskjaer let the 18-year-old know that he’s seen as a part of the club’s future, adding that the Norwegian is convinced that Amad is ready to play for United’s first-team.

Romano’s also found that the United hierarchy are convinced that Amad is either the second or third best player aged 18 or under in world football. Hopes are clearly high for the winger.

The Red Devils officially announced that they’ve pre-agreed a deal to sign the talent from Atalanta, with the ace expected to join in January once a medical, personal terms and a work permit are all sorted.

Romano reported at the time of the signing on Deadline Day that United will pay an initial €30m fee for the attacker, with the agreement also including a further €10m in potential add-ons.

Amad began to work his way into Atalanta’s first-team last season, the talent scored when he made his his Serie A debut off the bench last October, with the ace making two more outings as a sub since.

Amad has been on the bench for all of Atalanta’s Serie A games so far this season but hasn’t been called into action, the side sit top of the table after a phenomenal start.

There’s no doubt that the United faithful will be keeping a close eye on Gian Piero Gasperini’s side from now on, with the hope that they’ll get to see more of the prospect in action.

Amad, who has born in the Ivory Coast and moved to Italy at a young age, is a right-winger, with the starlet also boasting experience at youth level on the opposite flank or even as a No.10 or centre-forward.
