Sheffield United reportedly want to bring in Manchester United winger, Amad Diallo, as Slavisa Jokanovic looks to add more to his attacking options.
Having drawn a blank in our opening two league games, it’s become clear that United need to add some fresh impetus in attacking areas. This, despite a plethora of attacking talent on the books already.
Jokanovic played with Rhian Brewster and Oli Burke in wide attacking areas at the weekend. However, for all Brewster’s endeavour, the pair were relatively ineffective.
But the Daily Mail now claims that the Blades want to sign Diallo. The Manchester United winger is being allowed to go out on loan. It follows the signing of Jadon Sancho this summer.
Diallo arrived at Old Trafford in January in a deal worth £37m. But, he has found first-team chances hard to come by, despite impressing in cameos.
Our View: Amad Diallo the exciting signing Sheffield United fans need
It’s worth noting this rumour is coming from respected local journalist Alan Biggs, who has told Talksport of our interest in Diallo.
But no matter where the link has come from, or how true it is, Diallo would certainly excite the United fans.
Speed, power, an eye for goal, and a bag of tricks, what more could Blades fans want in a winger or wide forward? Further to that, Manchester United simply aren’t spending £37m on a young player without them having pedigree.
While the incoming signings of Vieira and Davies are needed, the addition of someone like Diallo takes us to the next level.
If United pull this off, then the board deserve huge credit. As with most transfer rumours to good players, we will simply have to wait and see.
