Manchester United youngster Amad Diallo has been tipped to win the Ballon d’Or in five years, according to the man who helped him seal his move to Atalanta.

United agreed to a deal with the Serie A team for Amad last September, joining his new team at the end of the year.

The Ivorian made an instant impact playing for the club’s under-23 team, scoring three goals and providing three assists in two appearances before being drafted to the senior team.

The 18-year-old has made four games off the bench for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, scoring a remarkable header against AC Milan in the knockout stage of the Europa League, a goal that helped them reserve their spot in the quarterfinals.

Former AC Milan and Italy goalkeeper Giovanni Galli was the man who helped organize a test for Diallo in Atalanta when he made the leap from the amateur level.

While he believes that the teenager has yet to develop physically, he is confident that he can become one of the best players in the world before he is 20 years old.

Amad is unique,” Galli told Goal. ‘But he must make himself stronger.

“At the same time, he must make sure he does not lose his speed, which is a quality that distinguishes him from others.

“He is very young and has already made his debut in the Europa League just two months after arriving in England,’ he said.

“I think next year he will have more chances to stand out in the first team.

“He is a very good player, but he has to remember that talent alone is not enough. He has to work hard and become a footballer who plays for and with the team.”

“In short, I think he has all the qualities to be a candidate for the Ballon d’Or in the next five years.”

Amad has already shown glimpses of his potential, but with the youngster adjusting to life in England and United entering a hectic season, Galli believes it will be next season when fans see his true potential.

“He is very young and has already made his debut in the Europa League just two months after arriving in England,’ he said.

“I think next year he will have more chances to stand out in the first team.

“He is a very good player, but he has to remember that talent alone is not enough. He has to work hard and become a footballer who plays for and with the team.”
