Both Diallo and the Uruguay kid were panic transfer as this donkey deadwood missed out Jadon and tried to bring hot prospects to please the fans. I will be very surprised if either one of them will make a breakthrough in first team giving OGS rarely rotates the front three

So he's Ivorian now but as soon as he makes his debut for United he'll be Italian. Interesting.

I remember back then some suggest Ronaldo as panic transfer too, in the sumner after we miss out big time to buy Ronaldinho from PSG to replace Beckham.
It’s ridiculous I know, but there is always some people suggest things like that.

If he’s a United employee, why on earth would United let him train and be named in squads for Atalanta?

Im pretty certain, albeit with no evidence to back it up, that the deal has not been 100% ratified yet.
This is the problem with the world at the moment.

That was only under SAF and the CEO David Gill or Peter Kenyon( I can’t really remember). Now we are all under this donkey ED who never knows about football !

Have to say I’m struggling to understand why a “generational talent” in his late teens - who was filmed taking the piss out of alleged first teamers in training - can’t even make a 12 man bench for Atalanta in a huge game where 5 subs are allowed. Something doesn’t compute. Is he injured?

Maybe it's because they have nothing to gain from playing the kid now

It's almost as if he's leaving in 30 odd days for a huge profit.

Weird.

Well he could help them win a game of football match. And I’m not sure playing a game of football is as big a risk for a valuable asset as you imply.

Isnt he just training with them and not playing matches? We owe him, but because of visas he is training with Atlanta until Jan to keep himself fit?

He´s leaving. Why give game time to a youngster not part of the future.

Apart from what’s already been said, these two posts provide some good insight:
Didn't Atalanta also get rid of another highly rated wide player in Kulaveski? Gasperini's system is quite niche. I wouldn't read too much into him not getting any game time. Really looking forward to seeing him play for us.
Gasperini is known for his Bielsa-esque detailed-oriented tactical approach (and Atalanta's slightly suicidal personal pressing falls apart if even one player isn't doing what he needs to do) and his attitude towards integrating new players into the team is to always take it slow (look at Malinovskiy last season or Miranchuk now – and those are the players who already fit his system tactically).

I'd imagine that Diallo would've been played more and more gradually from this season forward, but the transfer certainly didn't help his Atalanta career – Gasperini still needs to shape him into someone a bit different before he fits Atalanta perfectly and there's no sense in doing that anymore since he's going to leave in a couple of months.
Also much like Kulusevski, Diallo was meant to before we swooped in, all but done to go on loan to Parma. My guess is a successful loan or two was the plan, before selling him for a nice profit too.

For the short term benefit of helping them win a football match.
I doubt their coach regard him that much better than the ones already playing, he´s only 18, and it´s not like they are in a desperate position. It´s still early season, and there will be many players in the squad needing game time. Imagine James leaving in January, that sure wouldn´t have helped him climb the rank.

I know he's set to join us in January but does that mean any time from Jan 1st? Or is there a date later in the month where he can come to England and start training etc.?

I'm sure we'll ease him in slowly and give him a few reserve matches like Pellestri.

Unless he blows everybody away in training, we need to be patient.

Nobody should expect much out of him this season. I’m going to guess he gets a few sub ons late in the year.

Ye, if there is one thing Atalanta need it's someone who can score goals, it really seems to be the part of the game they struggle with.
