Every fan will get excited about a new signing so the club have a fairly simple remit when it comes to writing pieces to promote the transfer – get the name right and also just use any picture of the player.
Unfortunately for Man United it appears the official website has had a bit of a clanger when it comes to announcing Amad Diallo, as they’ve been accused of using a picture of his Atalanta teammate Caleb Okoli:
Official United website publish an article about Amad Diallo using a picture of his Atalanta teamate Caleb Okoli. from r/soccer
#MUFC just posted an article (now deleted) to their official website about Amad Diallo, using this picture.
This picture is his former Atalanta team mate, Caleb Okoli.

Obviously the official link to that piece is now showing an error message rather than the original piece, but it’s far from ideal when announcing a big money signing.
