Erik ten Hag reluctant to let Manchester United youngster leave Old Trafford



| Last Updated:


According to reports, Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is determined to keep Amad Diallo at the club for the remainder of the season.

Amad, who impressed during his return from injury off the bench in the Red Devils’ 2-1 loss to Nottingham Forest, caught the eye of former United player Mikael Silvestre.

Silvestre would urge Erik ten Hag to give Amad ‘a chance’, something it now looks like Ten Hag will be doing by keeping the right-winger at the club.

In a new report by Simon Jones, it was noted that after his return from injury, Amad Diallo will be in Erik ten Hag’s plans for the foreseeable future.

The attacking options for Ten Hag’s Red Devils have been a constant cause of headaches for fans and staff this season.

With Amad Diallo only recently returning from injury, this season has already seen Antony, Marcus Rashford, Facundo Pellistri, and Alejandro Garnacho all starting games on the right side.

Of those names, Garnacho, in his one appearance on the right, was the only one to impress in the position. But injuries to fellow squad members would force him to return to the left before he could continue to gain momentum.

For the remaining three names, Rashford has been unable to find form, clearly favouring the left wing. Antony has continued to show little to justify his £85 million fee. The Brazilian has failed to produce a goal or assist in almost eight months of competitive football, with his last assist coming 240 days ago in a home victory against Wolves.

Pellistri, meanwhile, has continued to appear surplus to requirements, which, if reports are to be believed, is not far from the truth.

UtdDistrict understands unlike Amad Diallo, Erik ten Hag would be open to allowing Pellistri to leave the club on loan.

The club are also willing to allow a buy option to be included in any potential loan deal for Pellistri at a potential fee of £10-20 million. This buy option, however, will depend on a future sell-on clause also being agreed upon by United and the purchasing club.
