Parma chief breaks silence after Manchester United snatched Amad Diallo transfer

Parma director Alessandro Lucarelli has accused Atalanta of reneging on a deal to sell them Amad Diallo. The 18-year-old has agreed to join Premier League giants Manchester United in January. Prior to United's acquisition of Diallo, whom they agreed to sign on Monday night, the young winger seemed on course to join Atalanta's Serie A rivals Parma. An agreement was said to be in place for the coveted Diallo to swap the Gewiss Stadium for Ennio Tardini Stadium. However, that deal didn't end up coming to fruition, much to the annoyance of Lucarelli. "We worked according to the dictates of the new club, we tried to buy many young players who will be able to give us a hand," Lucarelli told Sky Sports Italia. "We already had a proven squad, which is strengthened by many interesting young players. You must ask Atalanta about Diallo, we had the agreement and then the negotiation with Manchester United started and they sold him. "We covered ourselves with other players and we will make up for it, but he would have been useful." United will reporrtedly pay Atalanta £37.1million for the services of Diallo, who the club claim has been on their radar since 2016. Source- Daily and Sunday Express Join us on Telegram!
