CR7 played regularly for Sporting in his breakthrough season. And Diallo hasn't skinned our or anyone's defence either because he's barely played.fat maradona wrote: ↑1 month agoThe issue was around his work permit and so it made sense for him to join in January, once he had got the permit. I don't know anything about him apart from what I've read....Ole says United have been watching him for years and the Atalanta captain made some remarks about how good he is. I reckon we moved quick and paid the fee before someone else did and then hope that he lives up to potential. Don't forget CR7 was a similar signing, none of us had heard of him and we'd paid £12m for him back in 2003. He was bought off the back of him skinning our defence in that friendly.bman2 wrote: ↑1 month agoWe either got taken for a ride or we arsed up the transfer and let Diallo needlessly waste the past three months sitting on the bench for Atalanta. Hopefully the second. It’s odd though that Atalanta’s owner was just talking openly about the hope that he’d stay longer with them. It all seems a bit confused.
You could still be right though.
Good thing is we've only paid less than half for Diallo up front and the others include bonuses which if met, means he'd be more than worth it. I reckon.
