New Manchester United recruit Amad Diallo has been fined by the Italian football federation over the use of false documents.

Diallo, 18, was ordered to pay €48,000 (just over £42,000) in relation to documents which were used firstly to enable him to enter Italy, and then to sign for two clubs - Boca Barco in 2015 and then professionally with Atalanta.

Ivory Coast-born Diallo linked up with United last month after leaving Atalanta in a deal worth £37.2m.

The Italian federation [FIGC] said two individuals - Hamed Mamadou Traore and Marina Edwige Carine Teher - had "pretended" to be Diallo's parents and requested family reunification based on "false certificates to attest to the family relationship".

These documents enabled him to sign for Boca Barco in 2015 and Atalanta in 2018, the FIGC said.

United declined to comment, but are understood to be confident the matter will have no impact on Diallo playing for them.
