Manchester United new boy Amad Diallo has been handed a £42,000 fine in Italy over accusations he used fake documents to enter the country back in 2015.

The teenager left Serie A club Atalanta for Old Trafford during the January transfer window in a deal that could reach £37.2million, though had been subject to an investigation by the Italian football federation (FIGC).

It had been claimed that Diallo used fake papers to get into Italy and be reunited with his supposed parents, though the investigation concluded that the two people cited were not related to Diallo at all.

The FIGC confirmed, according to the Metro, that both Diallo and his brother, Hamed Junior Traore, had accepted plea bargains – though it was even claimed that the pair are not related either.

A statement from the FIGC said they had: “Committed acts aimed at obtaining false or altered certificates or documents to circumvent the rules on entry into Italy… through reunification with said Ivorian citizens, already residing in Italy, who pretended to be parents of the footballer.”

The ruling also stated that bogus documents had been used to ‘certify the relationship of kinship’ and were used when Diallo signed for both Boca Barco – his first club back in 2015 – and Atalanta.
