Manchester United starlet Amad Diallo has ruled out a move away from the club in the January transfer window following speculation about his future.
Amad, 21, has recently returned from a knee injury sustained in pre-season, which ultimately required surgery and a five-month lay-off.
Following his return from injury, Amad has been rumoured to exit in January on a loan basis for additional game-time. However, the latest reports from MailOnline state that Erik ten Hag wants the winger to remain at Old Trafford, and he’s planning to do the same.
Amad ruled out a move to Birmingham City, where ex-Sunderland manager Tony Mowbray has become manager after Wayne Rooney’s sacking, after responding to the links on social media platform X, formally known as Twitter. “Stop lying,” he said.
The Irovian has vowed to ‘always be present to help the team’ as he plans to make an impact at United in the second half of the season.
“I’ve come in with more belief and with the desire to help the team as I’ve always wanted to do, and I want to continue on this path,” he told club media.
“Whenever the coach calls me up or sends me on the pitch, I want to be always present to help the team.”
The talented winger has not often been able to make an impact at the club since his move from Atalanta in January 2021.
He has had two loan spells away and was not favoured by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when he first joined the club. Injuries have also played their part in hampering Amad’s development.
“It’s every child’s dream and every footballer’s dream to play at Old Trafford,” added Amad.
“And especially for me, I was born in Africa, and I used to watch matches at Old Trafford on the telly, and now to find myself playing on that pitch is something really special.”
Amad has also praised the approach from manager Ten Hag in training sessions and assured that he has a positive relationship with the Dutchman.
“He is a person who wants to work hard; even in training and when you’re going slowly, he calls you over and tells you to go stronger,” he explained.
“I like coaches like that, that let you know that you need to train hard. My relationship with him is a good relationship.”
