Transfer News: Amad Diallo set to be handed Feyenoord loan chance in January after nearing injury return

According to Daily Express (h/t Sky Sports), Manchester United youngster Amad Diallo is nearing a return from injury and could be handed the chance to secure a loan move to Feyenoord in January.

The Ivory Coast winger was linked with a move to the Eredivisie side this summer. Everything seemed to be in place for a loan move to occur but the deal collapsed after Diallo encountered a serious injury in training.

The Rotterdam-based side signed Reiss Nelson on loan from Arsenal instead while Diallo stayed at Old Trafford. The former Atalanta starlet is now nearing a return from that injury and could secure a January move away from the club.

Diallo arrived at Man United in January this year amid much hype, and managed to rack up a handful of senior appearances under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer domestically and in Europe.

Loan move for Diallo?

But since then, his stocks have seemingly gone down. Jadon Sancho’s signing and Mason Greenwood’s constant rise within the first-team ranks means that Diallo may have to wait to get a crack at regular first-team football at Old Trafford.

Still just 19, he has a long way to go before he reaches his prime years. Experience in top-flight football, whether it is in England or the Netherlands, will play a big role in his development.

Keeping that in mind, the club should make an informed decision about his future. With Greenwood, Sancho, Marcus Rashford, and now Jesse Lingard, the Red Devils have enough talent to get them through this season.

But one the other hand, they should also be wary of where Diallo ends up because no one at the club would want a repeat of what is apparently happening with Facundo Pellistri at Alaves.
