Amad Diallo has named the two Manchester United players he considers role models at Old Trafford.

The youngster has completed his transfer to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and was at Carrington for the first time on Wednesday.

And during his first interview, the 19-year-old has revealed he will be asking Eric Bailly and Paul Pogba for advice in his first few weeks at the club.

“Absolutely, Eric will be a definite reference point for me,” Diallo told the official club website. “I’ve actually already been in touch with him over the last few months and we’ve been chatting.

“I’ll be asking him for advice and will be listening to all he says, and also the other players who speak French and Italian like [Paul] Pogba for example, he will be another good reference point for me.”

Then he added: “To be honest I cannot wait, I’m so excited at the prospect of working with these fantastic people at such a great club.

“This adventure is about to start and I’m really, really excited and over the moon.”
