Manchester United have seen plenty of talents light up Old Trafford at the start of their careers before drifting away from the first-team due to a number of different reasons.

Adnan Januzaj, who was given his senior debut by David Moyes, was one of the few positives to take home from the club’s frustrating 2013-14 campaign.

Once the dust settled, the Belgian wonder kid failed to live up to the hype, and a temporary spell at Sunderland under Moyes proved ineffective before his permanent move to Spain.

Now, another United talent is set to move to the Stadium of Light in order to develop and force his way into the Red Devils’ senior setup.

Amad Diallo, who emerged from the bench to score against AC Milan in the Europa League in 2021, follows Januzaj to Sunderland.

Amad joins the Championship side on a season-long loan. The 20-year-old’s wages will be split between the two clubs, as per the Manchester Evening News.

The Ivorian struggled to settle under manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst at Rangers last season. But Sunderland’s newly appointed gaffer Tony Mowbray’s coaching style is expected to suit Amad’s game.

Meanwhile, Januzaj also switched clubs this summer. The former Real Sociedad winger has joined Sevilla on a free transfer.
