The pearl of United that cost 21 million euros, without prominence

Amad Diallo, despite his 20 years, seems destined to be another toy broken before his time. He came from Italy, specifically from Atalantain January 2021 in exchange for €21 million. A high amount if you take into account that he had only participated in four games with the first team of the Italian team.

A handicap, which at the moment is not turning out as expected, the rush of the Mancunians to seize what seemed to be one of the promises of the old continent is aimed at another economic waste. It is true that the United He is not going through his best years and there seems to be no one at the controls in terms of signings in recent years.

Diallo did not finish entering the dynamics of the first team of the red devils, only 9 appearances with the contribution of a goal and an assist. His stay in Manchester went more through the U23 team with the intention of adapting to football on the islands. The next move of the Mancunian board was aimed at the footballer enjoying more minutes. Last season he left on loan to Rangers in the winter marketa minor league where you can exploit the qualities that are presupposed.

Again no trace of Diallo, van Bronckhorsthardly gave him chances in a team that reached the final of the Europe League and needed a wardrobe. His stay in Scotland is summarized in 13 games played and three goals scored. This summer she returned to Manchester and with the arrival of Erik Ten Hag, a coach who bets on young people, his situation could change. Nothing could be further from the truth, he did the pre-season tour with the first team, but on the last day of the market he left for Sunderland on loan for one year.

Things in Sunderland don’t seem to be getting any better. Only one game as a starter and the other 5 starting from the bench, no contribution in front of goal. Tony Mowbray, the team’s coach, sent him to the sub21 so that his performance could improve, but he also failed to stand out with the subsidiary. Weight to this Mowbray is clear: “He’s actually just a kid, but he has supreme talent.”. But he insists that he must improve if he wants to get his place in the team and in elite football: “It is not enough to be a footballer who can dribble and lift people, we have to instill in him that we want him to shoot and enter the area. That’s the message, but it’s not simple”.
