Diallo has played just 35 minutes for Atalanta in all competitions this season.

The Serie A club have preferred to give game time to prospects staying at the club rather than use the winger.

Diallo is likely to start with United’s Under-23 team until he adapts life in England.

Solskjaer rates the youngster and if he hits the ground running it cannot be ruled out that he could play a part in the remainder of the season.

United return to action against Manchester City on Wednesday in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup (7.45pm).
