Yesterday Sunderland announced the signing of Amad Diallo from Manchester United for the remaining of the 2022/2023 season. It must be noted that this is a one-year loan deal without an option to buy because Erik ten Hag and his coaching staff still believe that he could be a world-class player in the future that could help the team.

The 20-year-old winger will be living his second loan spell away from Old Trafford since signing with the Red Devils back in 2020. Diallo was unveiled as Sunderland’s new player last night alongside the rest of their signings in front of his new fans at the Stadium Of Light in their 3-0 win against Rotherham in the Championship.

The Ivory Coast player talked to his new club’s website, where he looked like he forgot it is just a loan deal: “I feel good and very positive about this opportunity, so I’m happy to be here. It was a great experience to play with Manchester United, but I’m here for a new challenge and I want to try my best to bring a lot of success to the club”.

“I feel good physically and I think this is the best team for me to progress and although I’ve never been to the Stadium of Light before, I know the supporters are great, so I hope we can win many games together”, he finished. It was reported that Manchester United chose Sunderland as his destination because their new manager’s style of football suits Diallo’s capabilities.

Best of luck

Hopefully, this will be a great season for Amad Diallo in the Championship. This way he will experience regular first-team football in England in one of the most physical leagues in Europe. This will help him work on his lack of physicality so he can return next summer to Old Trafford and finally become part of the senior team. It should be noted that United made a big investment in him a couple of years ago signing him from Atalanta for £37 million when he had only played five games with the Italian club.
