Amad Diallo Set for January loan move

Manchester United will send young winger Amad Diallo on loan in the forthcoming window.

The Ivory Coast was meant to go on loan in the summer but got injured on the month and has been recovering from injury since then; a chunk of Championship clubs said to be waiting for the short January window to make a move.

Speaking ahead of their game against Atalanta on Tuesday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Amad could go out on loan in January to search for more game time.

“We have to decide before Christmas if Diallo will be able to play enough here, or if he will go somewhere else,” the manager claimed ahead of the home fixture.

The Ivorian arrived at the club in January 2021 for a fee of £19m with an additional £18m in add-ons after United announced the deal in the summer transfer window previously.

While he hasn’t enjoyed a lot of minutes for the first time thus far, he has played an important part in some games and scored an important goal on United’s European campaign last season against AC Milan.

The 19-year-old hasn’t made a senior start for the club yet but had made three substitute appearances in the Premier League with five other appearances from the bench in other competitions.
