Recent reports suggest that Manchester United is open to reconsidering their stance on Amad Diallo and may allow him to leave on loan before the closure of the January transfer window.
Amad had a highly successful loan spell with Sunderland last season, contributing significantly with 14 goals and three assists in 39 Championship appearances, narrowly missing out on Premier League promotion with the Black Cats.
Several clubs in England’s second division, including Leeds United, Middlesbrough, Southampton, Leicester City, and, notably, Sunderland, have expressed interest in securing Amad’s services for the remainder of the 2023/24 campaign.
Despite recent clarifications from Amad himself, debunking rumors favoring Middlesbrough, and asserting his preference for a move to Sunderland, United and manager Erik ten Hag initially envisioned a significant role for the 21-year-old in the team this season, leading to a decision to retain him at Old Trafford.
However, according to Goal, while United continues to have faith in Amad’s abilities, there is now a possibility that their stance may be more flexible, especially with multiple suitors expressing interest in acquiring the forward.
This marks a notable shift from United’s earlier firm position on Amad’s immediate future. Just a few days ago, Sunderland boss Michael Beale expressed his team’s eagerness to welcome Amad back if he becomes available for loan.
Beale emphasized that, despite financial considerations, Sunderland remains keen on bringing him back, acknowledging the positive impact he had during his previous stint with the club.
If Goal’s update is accurate, it suggests that the situation may be evolving, and Sunderland might soon have the opportunity to secure Amad’s services once again.
