Amad Diallo, Tahith Chong and Facundo Pellistri likely to leave Manchester United on loan this summer
According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano via Caught Offside (h/t Mirror), Three Manchester United youngsters, namely Amad Diallo, Tahith Chong and Facundo Pellistri are likely to leave Old Trafford on loan this summer.
The trio has played a small part in the Red Devils’ pre-season. However, the Ivory Coast international has been the best out of the bunch, putting in an impressive performance against Rayo Vallecano.
Erik ten Hag has held talks with Diallo’s agent. The gaffer has decided to send the 20-year-old back out on loan this summer. Chong and Pellistri are set to be on their way as well.
A good decision?
The three also spent time at other clubs in the previous campaign. The Ivorian got a chance to get more game time in Scotland with a loan move in January. For Rangers, the 20-year-old featured in 13 games last season. He ended up winning the Scottish FA Cup with the Glasgow-based side.
Chong spent time on loan in the Championship with Birmingham City. Taking part in 20 games for the senior side, he scored one goal and assisted three more last season. An injury early on in the season derailed the 22-year-old’s run of games.
Pellistri was sent to Spain to gain valuable experience on the pitch. But the Uruguayan hardly featured for Deportivo Alaves. In LaLiga, the 20-year-old featured 20 times last campaign, but that amounted to just 585 minutes of game time.
We have a lot of talented youngsters currently in our ranks. James Garner, Hannibal Mejbri, Alejandro Garnacho, Zidane Iqbal and Charlie Savage are some of the academy graduates who’ve come into their own.
While 21-year-old Garner has proven his traits in the Championship with Nottingham Forest, the others have just recently broken out. United need to give their careers a direction now.
