“If we watch the video of the dialogue and talk to the people who will work on his transfer, it will become clear that this guy can conquer the world. Manchester United believe that they have found the diamond.

I do not want to be pressured and expect the same from him as from Ronaldo. But no one knew Cristiano outside of Portugal when we bought him. In this respect, they are like each other. “If he uses his talents properly, Diallo will also become a superstar,” Ferdinand said.

Amad Diallo moved to Manchester United in early January and signed a contract until the summer of 2025. However, the English club agreed on a transfer with Atalanta back in October last year. According to the media, the Mancunians would pay 25 million euros to the player from the very beginning, and another 15 million in the form of bonuses.
