Sunderland have announced the signing of Amad Diallo from Manchester United in a season-long loan deal without an option to buy for the remaining of the 2022/2023 campaign. The player’s wages will be split between both clubs according to Samuel Luckhurst. The Red Devils only wanted to loan him out because they count on him for the future.

This will be the Ivory Coast winger’s second spell out on loan since signing with Manchester United back in 2020 from Atalanta. Last season he wasn’t playing too much, so he was loaned out to Glasgow Rangers in January. Despite not being a regular starter, he helped them win the Scottish Cup during his time at the club.

Some of the closest sources to the English giants reported earlier today that United’s board and Erik ten Hag had chosen Sunderland as his destination because of the newly appointed manager of the Black Cats Tony Mowbray’s play style of football, which suits Amad Diallo’s abilities so he could exploit his physical capabilities. 

Despite him only being 20 years old, the young winger was signed by Manchester United from Atalanta when he was only a teenager for a fee of around €21 million that could end up reaching the €40 m mark when he had only played five games with the Italian club’s senior team. He was considered the next big thing coming from Atalanta’s academy.

More experience

A year at the Championship can be very beneficial for Amad Diallo’s short career since he needs to gain more first-team experience in English football. The Championship is also a very physical league, which will help him get stronger since he is only 1.73 m in height and is very light weighted. Hopefully next year he will feature as a regular member of of the senior team.
