“As a club, 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,” United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 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’s a player with all of the raw attributes that are needed to be an important player for Manchester United in the years to come.”
