Sheffield United is eager to loan the Man Utd Diallo winger, but Solskjaer is unsure if the teenager will leave the club.
A little about the topic
Earlier this month, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that they were weighing what to do with Amad Diallo and the loan move was an opportunity for its further development. However, the Man Utd manager was impressed with the winger after joining the team after the Olympics and will not confirm if the 19-year-old will leave before the window closes at the end of the month.
What was said about Amad Diallo?
Sheffield United manager Jokanovic confirmed his interest in Amad Diallo in his pre-match press conference on Friday. When asked if Diallo is of interest, Slavisa Jokanovic replied that he does not need to comment, but there is some truth in this. Ole Gunnar was asked about the plan for Amad Diallo in his press conference as his side prepares to face Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday.
Ole said that with Amad Diallo he has to say that he did really well in training, Amad came back a little later after the Olympics, he needed some time to get him back and now Amad looks very good. Ole says he won’t be surprised if Amad Diallo stays, but it has to be the right credit, the right move, the right club, the right way to play for any of our teenagers.
A little about Amad Diallo
Amad Diallo arrived from Atalanta in January and made eight first-team appearances last season, but only two starts. Amad has missed most of his preseason workouts since he competed for the Ivory Coast at the Olympics, and with Sancho signing he has been pushed further down the order at Old Trafford.
What else did Solskjaer say?
Ole has indeed confirmed that one player who will be leaving the club on loan is midfielder James Garnen. The 20-year-old is expected to join Nottingham Forest on loan. Ole said that he would definitely think Jimmy would go on loan, which is more or less done. Jimmy did a very good job in the preseason, he really impressed Ole, he thinks he will be helped in his career for another year or another six months in the Championship, playing regularly.
