Transfer update: Latest on Man Utd, Dybala and Jordan
Manchester United will bring in more players than just Amad Diallo this month, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. United agreed a deal to sign Atalanta youngster Diallo last summer but work permit issues meant the player could not move to Old Trafford immediately. However, the 18-year-old is set to complete his switch to England soon and has been pictured boarding a jet in the last few days as he attempts to get a deal over the line.
Diallo will cost United an initial £19million, which could rise to £37m with add-ons.
But Romano says the winger is not the only player he expects to join the Red Devils this month.
United are expected to decide soon if they are going to sign Ecuador midfielder Moises Caicedo.
Caicedo, 19, plays for Independiente in his home country and has already won four international caps.

Romano says United could also sign a centre-back, though a deal for RB Leipzig star Dayot Upamecano looks unlikely in this window.
“Yes, I expect something more [than Diallo] from Manchester United,” Romano told Sky Sports News.
“We have to follow the situation of another interesting young player like Moises Caicedo. Good player, good talent, they are going to decide soon if [they’re going to spend] some money on him or not.
“And also possible at centre-back. Let’s see what’s going on, I think it’s really difficult to go for Upamecano in this moment, possible next summer, we’ll have to see about him.

“But something more, not only Amad Diallo, for Manchester United.”
At the weekend, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Diallo is set to join the club soon.
Solskjaer is “excited” by the teenager’s potential but didn’t give any indication he wants to make further signings in this window.
“We have had all the paperwork, I can’t see any obstacles. He’s coming,” the Norwegian said of Diallo.
“I hope very soon he will be with us. I’m very excited about bringing him in, I think he’s shown a few times his qualities.
“Of course he has to learn to play in England, that’s a different level of football.
“We’ll give him time to develop and to express himself.
“Apart from that, I’m not really thinking too much on what we’re going to do with players [in the January transfer window].”
