What impact can Amad Diallo have as an FPL asset at Manchester United?

Teenage sensation Amad Diallo is finally joining up with Manchester United after agreeing a £40million move in the summer.

After spending all season hoping Borussia Dortmund would lower their asking price for Jadon Sancho, Diallo was one of four players brought in by the Red Devils towards the end of the transfer window.

But anyone thinking of Diallo as a panic buy or a runner’s up prize to the England international could be in for a rude awakening.

The 18-year-old winger has been described by some as a “generational talent” and one of the best players in the world at his age.

He made such an impression at Atlanta in the first half of the season that boss Gian Piero Gasperini was eager to keep him for longer, only for Man United to insist on the move.

This would lead you to believe Diallo will feature straight away in the Man United first-team, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is so far keeping his cards close to his chest.

How the January transfer window and deadline day will affect FPL

“I’ve seen there’s been lots of expectations on Amad and rightly so, an exciting player with fantastic attributes we look forward to developing. It’s important we give him that time to settle in, if it’s in the under-23s or if he looks ready to go into the first team, I don’t know yet.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Prodigy

Not much data exists for us to be able to read much into Diallo’s game, having played just under an hour of senior team football in two appearances.

But already in this time, the youngster got himself onto the scoresheet in Atalanta’s 7-1 demolition of Udinese, cutting in from the right to score with his left foot.

Footage shared widely on social media shows Diallo loves to get the ball on the right hand side before dribbling inside and taking on the full-back.

As for his playing style, former teammates at Atalanta have gone as far as to describe him in the same breath as Lionel Messi.

“He plays like Messi. There are defenders in the first team that sometimes cannot stop him. To stop him in training we have to kick him.”

Papu Gomez

In a piece on The Athletic, Wyscout determine Diallo’s key attributes as excellent close control, a low centre of gravity and lightning quick acceleration.

And far from a one-trick-pony, special mention is given to his ability to go on the outside of the full-back and cross the ball well with his right foot.

According to Wyscout figures, Diallo has attempted 9.01 dribbles per 90 minutes, which is a high amount even for a winger.

The wonderkid is also not fouled very often, showing a hidden strength despite his diminutive appearance and a preference for riding tackles.

All of the above persuaded Solskjaer to part with a large amount for a player relatively untested at senior level, watching him personally in the UEFA Youth League where he terrorised Manchester City.

“We have followed Amad for a number of years and having watched him myself, I believe he is one of the most exciting young prospects in the game. Manchester United has a proud history of developing young players and everything is in place to enable Amad to reach his potential here. It will take him time to adapt but his speed, vision and fantastic dribbling ability will stand him in good stead to make the transition. He is a player with all of the raw attributes that are needed to be an important player for Manchester United in the years to come.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Prospects

Judging by Ole’s words above, it sounds like Diallo is going to be eased in this season, rather than jumping straight in to the first team set-up.

It may be worth noting another promising winger, Facundo Pellistri (£5.2m), signed in the summer, has yet to feature in the Premier League and has mainly been playing at an Under-23 level.

However, should Diallo impress in training and at the lower levels, the Red Devils’ struggles on the right hand side of their attack may force Solskjaer’s hand in introducing Diallo early.

Mason Greenwood (£7.1m) has struggled to replicate the form he showed last season on the right, and his game suggests he is more suited to a role through the middle.

Greenwood below-par and

Marcus Rashford (£9.6m), Dan James (£6.2m) and Juan Mata (£5.8m) have also been trialled with limited success down United’s right-hand side, with Ole even opting to ditch winger completely in some games and move to a midfield diamond.

But the diamond does not look like it will be a long-term solution, with Solskjaer stating on numerous occasions about how he wants his sides to play with pace and width.

And United hit a purple patch of form with Greenwood in the side last season, allowing him and Rashford to cut inside from wide and Anthony Martial (£8.8m) to play through the middle.

Diallo’s game looks like it suits this system perfectly and he could find himself gaining minutes sooner rather than later and in one of the league’s most potent attacks.

Value

Assuming Diallo comes in around the same value as Pellistri, this puts him in direct competition with a budget enablers such as Tomas Soucek (£5.2m) at West Ham and Raphinha (5.5m) of Leeds.

Without more to go on, it’s difficult to make a case to add Diallo to our teams until we get an idea of how Ole is going to incorporate him.

But should Diallo hit the ground running, he may ironically turn into last season’s Mason Greenwood, the man he is tipped to replace on the right-wing.

    In DGW situations where games are spread out over many days, if a match is postponed *after the FPL deadline*, does it stay in the same DGW whenever it is replayed or not?

                  Agree. I'm keeping Son for the double but can see why you'd want KDB

                  1. doher.ty
                      4 days, 5 hours ago

                      Son is a tough one to lose but I will likely TC KDB if in my team.

              Best sub 4.0 defender? Assuming its between Mitchell or Struijk?

              1. doher.ty
                  4 days, 6 hours ago

                  Coin toss between the two imo - Mitchell may be safer (which sounds strange) Once the Leeds boys are back Struijk drops to the bench.

                  1. PascalCygan
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 3 Years
                    4 days, 6 hours ago

                    As a relatively long-time Struijk owner, I agree with this

                  2. Jellyfish
                    • 8 Years
                    4 days, 6 hours ago

                    Yes thats what I concluded. Thinking Struijk better short term option and Mitchell for the longer term....so given I don't want to be wasting transfers at this price point thinking Mitchell

                    1. doher.ty
                        4 days, 6 hours ago

                        Both have their risks but for 4.0 you can't expect too much 🙂

                  Thoughts on TC KDB? Of course the Villa game is at risk but imagine Villa forced by PL to field again the B -team. Insane potential

                  1. Jellyfish
                    • 8 Years
                    4 days, 6 hours ago

                    Villa won't be forced to play it

                    1. NateDogsCats
                        4 days, 6 hours ago

                        If Villa don't play that it'll be 4 fixtures of theirs that have to be rearranged, 2 of which would be against teams still in other cups and Europe, I'd be incredibly surprised if that doesn't go ahead

                        1. Jellyfish
                          • 8 Years
                          4 days, 6 hours ago

                          But other teams haven't been forced to play (Newcastle, Everton etc) so Villa lawyers would be all other this

                          1. NateDogsCats
                              4 days, 5 hours ago

                              True but those were immediate worries over breakouts that just happened, this will be weeks afterwards

                      • doher.ty
                          4 days, 6 hours ago

                          That game is 19 days from their last game. I would hope if isolating that they will be ready to go for the City game. The Everton game is definetly up in the air.

                          They fielded the u23's in the FA Cup and postponed the PL game. Could be a whole different bucket of ducks after tonight's game

                        Postponements might scupper my bench boost plans, but still worth doing this move?

                        DCL + Holding > Wood/Antonio + Cancelo (-4)

                        Two appearances instead of the injured DCL would make up the hit, and I mainly want to do it to get Cancelo.

                        Gives me 14 DGW players, with Son my only single gameweek player.

                            Sensible moves, I would.

                              Thanks. And is Antonio too much of a risk do you think? Not sure which 6.2 striker or cheaper to go for

                              1. doher.ty
                                  4 days, 6 hours ago

                                  I'd probably risk it with Antonio. They don't really have anyone else who can play there + 60ish minutes each game with those fixtures is enough for me. Of course, there is a risk given his fitness but I'm considering it myself. I much prefer him to Wood.

                                Not convinced with both Wood and Antonio at the moment

                                    As someone that punted on Wood a few weeks back as I needed someone around the 6m mark, I'll say don't do it, especially as I went for him during what looked like a decent run but he doesn't have that now

                                      What hasn't convinced you about Antonio? He hasn't played much but was quality against tough opposition earlier in the season. 3 goals in 6 against Arsenal, Wolves, LEI, Man City, TOT, Newcastle. Thats a decent return.

                                        You are basing your comments in his perfomance before the injury. He just came back from a long injury, he looked leggy and wasn't that convincing in the cup game against Stockport. Can't see him playing 2 games in 3 days

                                            Who else is going to play? Even if he gets 60 mins per game surely he has a bigger upside than Wood.

                                      In that price bracket only Decordova Reid remains having a double and being viable option. But his fixtures are bad, you never know though

                                          If it's a punt you could do worse tbh, he's had a good season and before their outbreak at least Fulham were a different team to the one that started this season so poorly

                                      With the plan to still BB, which option is best?

                                      A. Balbuena and Son to Shaw(4YC)/Dawson/4.8def and Salah -4
                                      B. Balbuena, Son and Kane to Cresswell, Salah and Vardy -8

                                        I'm keeping Son for DGW19. If anything there, maybe just change Balbuena and Holding? Burnley and a different West Ham defender?

                                        1. Tonyawesome69

                                          I think Holding will outscore Burnley def as I can't see Burnley keeping a CS against WHU and LIV. I feel I need Salah in there. I bought son at 9.6 so not much value built-up.

                                            Fair enough. I've had Son a long time. If it's easier to get him back, go for A.

                                            A lot of speculation in the article, as on here. The one fact I took away was their tight schedule

                                            City's big three weeks
                                            This game starts a run of seven favourable games in 20 days before a tantalising showdown at Anfield and home clash against Tottenham.

                                            Before that, City's fixture list looks like this:

                                            Today - Brighton (H)
                                            Sun Jan 17 - Crystal Palace (H)
                                            Wed Jan 20 - Aston Villa (H)
                                            Sat Jan 23 - Cheltenham (A - FA Cup, provisional date)
                                            Tues Jan 26 - West Brom (A)
                                            Sat Jan 30 - Sheffield United (H)
                                            Tues Feb 2 - Burnley (A)

                                      Despite obvious rotation risk, isn't TC likely a better option than BB on this upcoming dgw?

                                      I mean, certain premium players get picked like KDB by Pep. However, many less critical assets will be rotated on dgw and all that effort will be in vain?!

                                        If KDB has 2 fixtures I am considering it

                                          I'm mightly tempted....

                                          He'll play. Like Salah and Bruno I guess.

                                          Man City could be top, in the next 3 to 6 games if they continue their recent form.

                                        TC on KDB then?

                                        KDB only worth TC in 19 imo. Salah is the other option but him and LIV don't look convincing at the moment

                                        I think TC better now than in future doubles.
                                        My understanding is there could be more rotation around future doubles when premium players will have European matches so close to the future doubles.

                                        Kane and Son (got him for 9m) to Salah and Antonio for a 4pt hit?

                                          Will Moyes risk Antonio to play both games?

                                          Not sure I would mate because of the value that you are losing in Son....likely you will want him back at some stage

                                          The only way i can get Salah is Son and Kane out too, and i don't want to do it.

                                          If Antonio stays fit I will make these moves for a hit yeah

                                          Possible good move.

                                        McCarthy is back in training. I am not BB. If Forster did play I was definitely BB-ing

                                        Brewster to Antonio -4 or Rashford to Sterling -4(no city attacker atm)?

                                        Just checked the fa cup 4th/5th round draws and the fixtures for GW 29

                                        There is actually a very good chance of only 3-4 games taki g place that week. No game gauranteed yet

                                          Yeah it's made me glad i've hung onto all chips tbh. Can WC in the big hitters for the DGW before it, then FH in the Everton players v WBA, Leeds v Fulham, and Arsenal and WHU players without having them stinking up my team for the rest of the season.

                                              Lucky! I needed the FH this week but see the benefit of keeping it.

                                                Yeah Spurs fixture going ahead was a godsend. Gave me

                                                Holding, Dier, Dias
                                                KdB, Bruno, Son
                                                Kane, Laca, Brewster

                                                for free and figured i could be worst affected down the line.

                                            I was looking at the very helpful Ben Crelin spreadsheet for those fixtures. My prediction, not his so take this with a pinch of salt.

                                            GW29 Blanks for:
                                            Liv or *Man U, Tott, Chels, Arse, Leicester. (& Their opponents resulting in 4 remaining fixtures below.)

                                            Bright v New
                                            Palace v Man U (assuming Liv beat Man U)
                                            Sheffield v Villa
                                            WBA v Everton

                                            3 from Man U, Everton, Villa was my initial thoughts.

                                            What fixtures will double in GW26? If Spurs double there, not sure I'll wildcard in 26 and just WC a bit later in prep for 29.

                                          Man City line up shocks???
                                          I could do with any or all of Sterling, Dias, Stones benched.
                                          Only KDB and Cancelo here

                                            I have Sterling (c) 🙁

                                              I could do with KdB and Cancelo being benched (non-capper and non-owner here).

                                            A) Son/DCL ====> Sterling/Antonio (-4)

                                            B) Son/DCL/Chilwell or Robbo ====> KDB/Antonio/Cancelo or Stones (-8)

                                            Is it too risky to go without KDB for the double? Sterling for the differential and possibly reevaluate after the double gameweek?

                                              Your risk is with Martinez, who is your reserve keeper?

                                              Please don't! It would be hilarious if they fielded Torres and Foden instead.

                                              Yeah first week of owning Cancelo. Wish I'd just got Dias for the nailedness. KDB I can live with (even though he is my captain) as everyone's got him and my captains never do anything anyway.

                                                I own Dias and Stones, but went for Cancelo on FH. Now waiting for the inevitable benching!

                                            Sterling(C) and no Kane and Son the next several hours will decide the season I imagine

                                              No spurs assets was very risky

                                                Have double defense at least, hope that’s worth something

                                                Loads said he looked sluggish, but then they have no other forwards

                                                Sluggish, off the pace, going to take some time

                                                He didn't look very mobile, even considering the terrible pitch.
                                                He would really be a gamble, if he plays both games in the double, he will be subbed early if West Ham are winning.
                                                Soucek, Bowen, Coufal, Cresswell and Rice are the engine room and spine of the team now. Antonio could come good, but without full fitness, he plays like a shot shy target man at the moment, back to goal, etc....

                                                  As a Bowen owner Im slightly worried of his minutes as of late, I feel like he'll only start 1 of the games

                                                    Moyes managed his minutes over the Christmas crazy period. But his replacements are Lanzini and Yarmolenko, who are not as effective as Bowen. Apart from that he has started every match this season and I think is a good pick

                                              No chance Cancelo starts tonight, I brought him in on my FH as main rival has him, main rival took him out on a FH due to the pep comments!

                                                  I hung onto him as while I think he's been very poor in general play all season, he's still Salah and so many of Pool's goals end up with him, if I got rid of him after getting him for the first time a few weeks ago I'd probably never end up getting him back due to his price

                                                If the Leeds Southampton and Everton Villa game is postponed, I think Ill ditch the bench boost, in which case thoughts on these transfers?

                                                  Could be captainable for the double. Bruno YC v Liv and he's on pens vs Fulham.

                                                  Why I brought him in for Burnley, was hoping for a goal but the way the game went I'll take the assist

                                                    6 points is a fail on a FH

                                                  He was rubbish yesterday. His assist was like a mars bar in a crap lunch box

                                                    I know, delightful, can't argue with picking someone that has returned in every away game though

                                                    Has that priceless FPL habit of picking up points when playing rubbish

                                                    Kid's a baller once he gets backon the left, cutting in from the right just doesn't suit him anywhere near as much

                                                  He's due his 24 point climax game today

                                                  Then a Bum Rush to transfer him in for the Double

                                                  Then a brutal Pepping
