Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s work, both on and off the pitch, continues to help Erik ten Hag in his own rebuild at Old Trafford.

Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford, who were fringe players under Jose Mourinho, found their best form during Solskjaer’s time at the club. They now are part of Ten Hag’s core group of players.

The Norwegian’s signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka has also come into his own in the second half of the season. And Harry Maguire is the latest Solskjaer favourite Ten Hag has decided to rely on during the tail-end of the campaign amid injuries to his preferred centre-backs.

Ahead of the new season, the former Ajax man has set his sights on another Solskjaer’s signing to tackle attacking issues in his side.

Ten Hag willing to include Amad Diallo in his Manchester United squad

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Dutch gaffer is open to including Amad Diallo in his Manchester United squad next season. He is expected to be named in United’s pre-season tour squad of the United States.

The Ivorian arrived at Old Trafford from Atalanta in January 2021. The header against AC Milan in the Europa League raised hopes among the fans, but injuries and an underwhelming stint at Rangers stunted his progress, and another loan move followed in Ten Hag’s first transfer window.

The 20-year-old, currently approaching the end of his loan with Sunderland, has enjoyed a prolific stint in the Championship with 12 goals. His ferocious strike against Birmingham over the weekend excited plenty of United fans.

Staff at Carrington are pleased with the strides Amad has taken under the tutelage of Tony Mowbray. Ten Hag snubbed the option to recall the technically sound winger in January despite limited attacking players because he didn’t want to hamper his development.
