Towards the end of the summer window, Manchester United were ready to allow Amad Diallo to join Feyenoord on a season-long loan deal.
The Dutch club were keen to have the 19-year-old, but the transfer was cancelled in the end after he suffered an injury setback late in August.
Diallo stayed at Old Trafford, focusing on his recovery and has now regain full fitness. He has already made his first appearance, in the Red Devils’ 1-1 draw against Young Boys in the Champions League last week.
Feyenoord have still not forgotten about the Ivory Coast international and reports in the Dutch press have indicated he could leave the Premier League side on loan in the winter market.
RTV Rijnmond journalist Dennis van Eersel was discussing the possible operations the Eredivisie side could carry out next month. For the attack, the former Atalanta man was mentioned as a target and Van Eersel expects the United player to arrive in Rotterdam.
“[Tyrell] Malacia was slightly injured at one point, but was able to continue. But Feyenoord actually has no other left back. A left back would be nice,” Van Eersel said, as quoted by FR12.
“Feyenoord are still trying to see if they can get that boy from United: Amad Diallo. I expect something to happen during the winter break.”
A move to Feyenoord in January would help Diallo enjoy more game time than what he could get under Ralf Rangnick at United in the second half of the season, and with multiple sources seemingly pushing this, it’s looking more and more likely to happen.
