AMAD ABOUT THE BOY
MANCHESTER UNITED’S Amad Diallo is willing to go back to Sunderland — if boss Tony Mowbray stays.
The 14-goal winger, 20, starred with the Black Cats on loan and is considering his next move.
Ivory Coast wideman Amad Diallo is returning to Old Trafford after his Sunderland loan but his destination next season is up for grabs
A switch to Holland is an option but he enjoyed playing for Mowbray and could return.
Mowbray’s future came into doubt after Sunderland’s failure to go up via the play-offs.
Diallo, meanwhile, built up a strong rapport with Black Cats’ fans.
And after their exit against overall play-off winners Luton, the Ivory Coast ace posted a message for them, saying “one day we will meet again”.
And as supporters ponder his future, one Sunderland follower wrote: “There is no doubt whatsoever that this boy is going straight to the top.”
Another added: “His game has really really matured this year.”
But United fans piled in too – many believing he’s a better option than their current widemen like Antony and Jadon Sancho.
One said: “Hopefully get to see him cook next year for United.”
Others warmed to the theme, claiming: “More Brazilian than Antony” and “He is 10 times the player Anthony is”.
And there was a cheeky message from a Newcastle supporter after Eddie Howe’s men sealed a top-four finish in the Premier League.
He wrote: “He could be a cracking signing for us….good squad player for the extra Champions League games.”
