Manchester United’s January signing Amad Diallo has now been officially fined an amount of £42,000 for using fake documents, MySportDab reports.
The fine is because Diallo and his parents faked documents to travel to Europe from Ivory Coast.
Diallo was included as part of the United squad for the first time for Tuesday FA Cup match against West Ham.
He only recently completed his £37m switch from Atalanta.
Now, Italian Football Governing Body, The FIGC has now fined the 18-year-old winger and his brother Hamed.
MySportDab understands that His brother Hamed, a player for Serie A club Sassuolo offered accepted a plea bargain to avoid a football ban.
An official statement said that Diallo and Hamed used ‘false documents that had allowed them to come to Italy and reunite with their parents’.
It said: ‘The two made a request for “the application to art. 126 of the Code of Sports Justice”, a plea bargain.
‘The Federal Prosecutor’s Office has now issued a penalty fine of 48 thousand euros each for Amad Diallo and Hamed Traoe.’
The investigation focused on allegations that a child trafficking gang smuggled the two boys into Italy with a family visa six years ago.
Two people already in Italy falsely claimed to be their parents, Hamed Mamadou Traore and Marina Edwige Carine Teher.
The false documents were used to ensure that Diallo could sign for club Boca Barco in 2015 and join Atalanta after three years.
There are claims that Amad Diallo Traore might not be his real name and Hamed may not be his blood brother or close relative.
He dropped the name Traore on his 18th birthday in July 2020 and switched to Diallo in September.
Since September, he has decided to have Amad at the back of his Manchester United Jersey.
His move to United was already secured in October after United payed £19m plus £18m in add-ons to Atalanta.
The teenager was immediately added into United’s first-team squad after his brace on his debut for the club’s Under-23 side.
Diallo was not used in Tuesday’s 1-0 win against West Ham at Old Trafford, but his senior debut is only a matter of time.
