Diallo, who has three years left on his current contract, arrives at Old Trafford from Serie A side Atalanta in 2021. He was loaned to Scottish giants Rangers for six months last season, and he scored three goals across the competition in 13 games.
Speaking of vibe with five, Ferdinand said the 19-year-old should be loaned out again to gain more experience in the top flight. He says:
“Unfortunately, he wasn’t ready. He went to Rangers and couldn’t really get into the team and impact their team, which tells you he’s not close to getting into Manchester United. You know what I mean?”
“Also, again, is he the right player? He doesn’t have the explosive speed they might be looking for; he’s more of a more crafty player who likes to come to the ball and create like that, rather than running to things and the back and stuff like that.”
The six-time Premier League champion added:
“I just think it’s too early for someone like him to come in and put on the cape. Yeah, I don’t think he’s close enough to the first team. If he goes to Rangers and smashes it at Rangers, then he There’s a chance. But because he didn’t do anything, he’s going to be a bit outrageous, and I’d say he’s someone we’d like to loan out.”
Diallo has been included in the Red Devils’ 31-man squad for the pre-season tour, where he hopes to prove his mettle to his new boss.
