Amad is not in Ralf Rangnick’s thoughts for the 2021/22 campaign.
Manchester United Football Club are slowly but surely heading in a different direction under Ralf Rangnick. With that in mind, some players will flourish under the German while others will be moved on (either on loan or permanently).
One player who isn’t being considered for selection from now until the end of the season is Amad Diallo. The winger, signed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a deal worth £37million, will have to ply his trade elsewhere over the next five months.
The scoop comes from Jonathan Shrager, who states that the United star, who cost big money just one year ago, has been told he is ‘not in’ Rangnick’s ‘plans’ for this term.
Now, the Old Trafford club will look to sort out a loan move for the Ivory Coast international this month.
Cast your mind back to the summer when a loan move for Amad collapsed due to an injury. The wide man was supposed to spend the term with Feyenoord, before he was cruelly injured in training within 24 hours of the transfer deadline.
It always felt like Amad would be made to wait at least another campaign, due to the arrivals of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho over the summer.
The talent is so obviously there for Amad. He’s looked lively during his limited first-team opportunities, but also looked a little rough around the edges. Given time and regular minutes on the field, those minor issues within his game will slowly but surely be ironed out.
It’s why a loan move for Amad is perfect for the here and now. United need to handpick the ideal situation for the former Atalanta superstar. He cannot wilt away on someone else’s substitutes bench for the remainder of the campaign. Amad simply has to be playing football.
