Amad Diallo has been officially unveiled as a Manchester United player after completing his £37million move from Atalanta last week.

The 18-year-old could not hide his joy as he was shown around the club's facilities before conducting interviews at the Carrington training complex on Wednesday.

Just a day after United went top of the table with a win over Burnley, United fans can now see their newest signing don the club's colours for the first time since completing his move.

The 18-year-old, who has been given the No 19, is interviewed on his first day at training 

Diallo, who only made five senior appearances for Atalanta before being snapped up by United, revealed it was a 'dream come true' after being given the No 19 shirt – following the likes of Marcus Rashford and Dwight Yorke to be given the number. 

'After waiting since the summer, it is finally a dream come true to complete my move to Manchester United,' said Diallo last week. 

'I am hugely ambitious and there is so much that I want to achieve in the game; when I spoke to the manager I knew that I had joined the perfect club.

'This is a really exciting squad with so many great players, I can promise that I will work hard every day to learn from them and give everything to develop my game. 

'The coaches have been fantastic since I signed, we have been in touch regularly and they have already given me a lot of great advice.

'I have had time to prepare for this move, both physically and mentally, and I have worked really hard to be ready to make the step up to this amazing club.' 

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted that Diallo will train with United's first-team squad but it is far from certain that he will make his debut in English football anytime soon. 

The Red Devils paid £19m up front for the Ivory Coast winger and could pay up to £18m in add-ons, should he meet certain targets while at the club.

Diallo is viewed as one of the brightest young talents in the game and United will be confident he can play a prominent role going forward.

Club legend Rio Ferdinand believes he can have a huge impact in the future.  

'We've just bought a kid in from Atalanta and hopefully he does something,' the former United defender said on Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE podcast. 

'If you see his clips and speak to people at the club who are involved in buying him, potentially this kid could be a world-beater.

'That is the thought of Manchester United people that this kid is one they have unearthed.'

Ferdinand then went as far as drawing comparisons between Diallo and Ronaldo, who joined in a £12.24m deal in the summer of 2003.

Ferdinand added: 'I don't want to put the pressure of Ronaldo on him, but no-one knew about Ronaldo when we bought him other than the people in Portugal.

'This kid seems similar in that sense and if you see his clips and the way people talk about him, the world is his oyster if he applies himself right.' 

Diallo passed his medical and agreed personal terms last Thursday but actually signed for United in the previous transfer window in October, remaining in Italy on loan for the first half of the season.
