Man United are trying to find a suitable loan move for winger Amad this summer.
Two-and-a-half years ago, Manchester united brought in Amad from Serie A Club Atalanta. The young winger would score a stunning header on his debut for the Red Devils against AC Milan.
However, we’ve seldom seen the talented wide man since, aside from a few substitute appearances and the odd start during pre-season.
The now 20-year-old has also seen his development stunted due to a variety of different injuries. Amad has spent a couple of lengthy periods sidelined, which halted the chance at a season-long loan for the Ivorian back in 2021/22.
Well, things are different this time around. Reliable United source, Jonathan Shrager, believes United are ‘looking to loan’ out Amad this season.
The man who cost United a huge £37.2m (Sky Sports), is attracting interest from Blackpool, Sunderland, Anderlecht, Besiktas and Sampdoria. His agent, Michael N’Cho, is already talking to those clubs.
Amad is an interesting one. I already can’t help but feel United have massively overpaid for the winger, who hasn’t really developed as a player since his arrival.
A loan move to Rangers for the second half of the 2021/22 campaign didn’t really work out as planned, with Amad failing to start games on a regular basis for the Scottish outfit.
You’d hope that this time around. United do a little more homework in regards to where to send Amad. He absolutely has to be starting games on a weekly basis in order for him to progress and improve.
I’d personally like to see him head to Blackpool for a year. It’s close in terms of distance, while playing in England will absolutely serve him well upon his return to Old Trafford next summer.
