Ivory Coast coach welcomes loan move for Manchester United starlet

Manchester United winger Amad Diallo had a busy summer and looks set to join another club on loan for the new season.

The Ivorian represented his country at the Tokyo Olympics and he will be aiming to do the same with the delayed Africa Cup of Nations less than five months away.

I think United would like to see him make the squad and star in that tournament, and would the player himself, so by securing a loan move to a club he’ll play competitive first-team football every week is important.

The 19-year-old has joined United from Atalanta in January and several clubs have been linked with taking the youngster on loan, including Championship outfit Sheffield United, who suffered relegation last season.

Ivory Coast coach Patrice Beaumelle has said a loan move could be very beneficial.

“We are four or five months before Afcon and I would love him to play more games,” Beaumelle told BBC Sport Africa.

“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.”

Amad is currently training with United’s first-team with his future unresolved.

There won’t be a shortage of interest when it comes to this winger.
