Amad Diallo has been advised to seek a loan away from Manchester United this summer by Ivory Coast head coach Patrice Beaumelle.
Amad Diallo is a player who is seen as someone who can be a part of the long-term attacking solution for Manchester United. However, with his game still raw, there is a feeling that he still needs to be groomed a lot before he can become a regular.
As a result, the Ivorian has barely featured for Manchester United since arriving from Atalanta in January earlier this year. And there is a feeling that with Jadon Sancho now a part of the first-team setup at Old Trafford, Amad could benefit with some time away on loan from Manchester United.
There is no shortage of interest in the 19-year-old either, with Sheffield United among the clubs keen on signing him temporarily. Former club Atalanta have also been credited with an interest in Amad and although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is yet to take a final call on him, a loan move could arguably serve him well.
That is exactly what Ivory Coast head coach Patrice Beaumelle seems to think as well, advising the teenage prodigy to seek a loan move to continue his growth. Speaking BBC Sport, Beaumelle said, “We are four or five months before Afcon and I would love him to play more games.”
“When you have talent like Amad Diallo has, he needs to show it and to improve on the field. I think that if he is not playing too much for Manchester United for now it is better to go on loan to show he deserves to be in the line-up or to play more for Manchester United.”
“Of course I would like them [Amad and Eric Bailly] to play more games but to play at Manchester United is not easy. Like other players, like Serge Aurier at Tottenham etc etc. But I call them every week. To play for the country and with the orange jersey, for them it brings a lot of joy and happiness and it’s very important. So I’m sure they will do the job.”
The likelihood of a loan move does appear to be high for Amad Diallo, although it remains to be seen if Manchester United send him to a club within the country or if he is sent out to a foreign club as the final week of the summer transfer window approaches.
