Manchester United forward Amad Diallo and his brother Hamed Traore has been fined £42,000 each for using false certifications to move to Italy in 2015.
The United youngster and his brother, Hamed Traore, were both fined by The FIGC, Italian football’s governing body.
The teenager has submitted a plea to avoid a ban but will have to pay the hefty fine imposed.
Diallo, who was playing for Atalanta before joining Manchester United, left the Ivory Coast in search of better opportunities.
Daily Mail reports that there is an investigation into a possible child trafficking ring responsible for smuggling Amad and Hamed into Italy on a family visa – including their false ‘parents’ – Hamed Mamadou Traore and Marina Edwige Carine Teher.
The Red Devils are yet to comment but the Daily Mail understands that the player was signed after the club received reassurances that it won’t impact his ability to continue playing for us.
