Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag unhappy

Four Premier League clubs have registered an interest in Man Utd winger Amad Diallo after his loan spell with Sunderland, who would also like to have him back, according to a report.

Amad enjoyed a breakthrough season with Sunderland when on loan there during the 2022-23 season. His time in the Championship was much more productive than his previous loan away in the Scottish Premiership with Rangers.

Now, Man Utd will have to carefully plot the next step for the 20-year-old, who has only made nine senior appearances for them before.

According to an update from 90min, Erik ten Hag will make the final decision about what to do with Amad after assessing him in pre-season back at Man Utd.

If the manager thinks another loan spell away would benefit the winger, who remains under contract at Old Trafford until 2025, then five willing takers have already registered their interest.

The report names West Ham, Everton, Fulham and newly promoted Burnley as the four clubs who are interested in having him on loan in the Premier League.

West Ham were already named as admirers of Amad in a recent report from another source.

Furthermore, Sunderland are dreaming of renewing his spell with them in the Championship for another season, which is alas deemed to be unlikely.

Amad Diallo ready to step up to Premier League

Instead, Amad should be in the top flight next season in order to reach the next stage of his development.

And if West Ham win the race, he would get the chance to participate in a European competition too, after their success in the Conference League earned them a place in next season’s Europa League.

But there is no indication at present which of the four Premier League outfits in the hunt for Amad’s loan is in the lead.

Besides, Ten Hag might yet decide to keep him around in the Man Utd first-team squad if he makes a good enough impression before next season starts.

During his season with Sunderland, the Ivory Coast international scored 14 goals from 42 appearances, also providing four assists.

He was named Young Player of the Year for the Black Cats, who sixth in the Championship before losing on aggregate to Luton Town in the play-off semi-final.

Man Utd originally signed Amad from Atalanta in October 2021 after he had made five senior appearances for the Serie A side, whose academy he came through.
