United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said the teenager had been on the club’s radar for a number of years.
“Manchester United has such a proud history of developing young players and everything is in place to enable Amad to reach his potential here,” he said.
“It will take time for him 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.”
Diallo said the move was a “dream come true”.
“I have had time to prepare for this move, both physically and mentally, and I have worked really hard to be ready to make the step up to this amazing club,” he added.
