Manchester United youngster Amad Diallo is said to be open to spending another season on loan away from Old Trafford.
According journalist Fredrik A. FiltvedtManchester United starlet Amad Diallo is open to another loan spell away from the club, having spent the second half of the 2021/22 season on loan with Rangers. Diallo is said to be in talks with manager Erik ten Hag over the matter, but nothing has been decided yet.
The 19-year-old joined Manchester United from Atalanta BC in the 2021 winter window for a fee of £19.2million. However, the youngster struggled to penetrate United’s frontline with Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes dictating the terms.
Manchester United then added Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho to their attack in the summer of 2021 which further reduced the youngster’s playing time. Diallo, as a result, was sent on a six-month loan to Rangers in January earlier this year.
In Scotland, the youngster made 13 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals but not completing the full 90 minutes in any game. It was also not used in the Europa League where Rangers reached the final and lost to Eintracht Frankfurt.
With the 19-year-old returning to Old Trafford this summer, there are still question marks over his playing time in the coming season. Manchester United are looking for one or more attacking signings with a wide player and center forward on the agenda.
It could mean another season where he mostly plays on the bench and Diallo is therefore open to another loan move in a bid to get some regular playing time. There is little clarity on which club would temporarily accept him but reports could start coming in once Ten Hag decides on the youngster’s future.
After joining the Red Devils last year, Diallo made nine appearances for their senior side, scoring and assisting one goal apiece. The Ivory Coast international still has plenty of time to carve out a place in the Manchester United first team and another temporary move away could prove very beneficial in that regard.
