Revealed: The latest on Man United’s plans for Amad Diallo

 

A fresh insight into the plans of Premier League giants Manchester United for youngster Amad Diallo has been forthcoming on Friday.

Reds stint

Ivorian starlet Amad of course made the highly-anticipated move to Old Trafford back in January.

The 19-year-old was at the heart of one of a number of deadline day deals struck by United last October, when he joined Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri in putting pen to paper on terms with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

Diallo, though, unlike the aforementioned trio, did not actually make the move to Manchester at the time.

With the Reds having been waiting for international clearance and the processing of a new passport for their latest big-money addition, it was decided that he would remain in Italy for the opening half of the campaign.

Upon his arrival at the Theatre of Dreams finally coming to fruition during the winter window, it subsequently came as little surprise when the African found first-team opportunities tough to come by.

All told, the 2nd-half of the campaign saw Amad afforded seven appearances by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, five of which came from the bench.

Across these outings, the teenage wide-man directly contributed to a pair of goals, courtesy of an assist, and the below-linked finish versus AC Milan:

With the new season of course now up and running, though, it has long remained unclear what United’s plans entail for Amad in 2021/22.

Jadon Sancho’s arrival at Old Trafford will only have pushed the explosive youngster further down the Red Devils’ pecking order out wide, sparking inevitable speculation that Amad could yet be farmed out on loan.

And, as outlined above, on Friday, an insight into the situation has been provided.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of United’s upcoming meeting with Southampton, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked for an update on the club’s plans for Amad, amid rumoured interest on the part of Sheffield United.

The Norwegian, though, went on to reveal that the situation remains somewhat up in the air, with neither a temporary stint away from Manchester, nor a spot in his first-team plans for the term ahead, having yet been ruled out:
