Mason Greenwood Is Seriously Impressed With Amad Diallo In Training
Amad Diallo is a 'wonderful' player, that's the assessment from Mason Greenwood, whose place in the Manchester United team could soon be taken by his new teammate.
It's been a relatively quiet transfer window in the Premier League so far and the biggest deal of January arguably went under the radar, with United signing Diallo.
The former Atalanta winger was always expected to join, with the deal all but confirmed in the summer, but it was only finalised at the beginning of this month.
Diallo didn't play much for his former side so we haven't seen too much of him in action just yet but clearly he's impressing his teammates already.
In a video going viral, Greenwood, who has played most of his games for United at right wing, said, "We've got a new player Amad that's come in, he's a wonderful technical player so I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of him soon."

Last week Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted that it might not be that long until the 18-year-old made his debut, saying, "There will need to be some adjustment to settle into the hustle and bustle of the physical part of the Premier League but I can't see it being too long until he's in the squad."

It's obvious why there's so much optimism about the Ivory Coast born winger with clips of him in training also making an impact on social media.
Speaking more recently about his new signing fixing United's issues at right wing, Solskjaer added, "That's his preferred position. He is good at finding space, he can go inside and outside and he will get the time to prove that he is the one.
"Along the way we have got Mason, Marcus [Rashford], Daniel [James], Juan [Mata] and Paul [Pogba] has played there, so we have options but I think when you look at the squad and you look at Amad and you think, yeah, that's probably where we will work to fit you in."
Greenwood shot into the United first team in the second half of last season, forming a formidable front three with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
The 19-year-old's form has dropped off a bit this season but he has still started seven games at right wing. He scored a brilliant goal as United beat Liverpool 3-2 in the FA Cup at the weekend, starting on the right.
Can Diallo be the long time answer for Solskjaer on the wing?
