Ole discusses Ronaldo debut

Manchester United’s rising star Amad is reportedly set to miss out on a loan move to Feyenoord after suffering an injury in training.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the exciting teenager was to be sent out on loan, with opportunities likely to be limited following the summer captures of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho.

The United boss didn’t say which club the 19-year-old would be joining – but now Feyenoord’s technical director Frank Arnesen has said a deal was in the bag until Amad picked up an injury.

There has been no confirmation of what the injury is, but Arnesen fears the Ivorian could be out for “a while” – which would be a blow to his hopes of impressing at Old Trafford.

“He got injured, it’s cancelled,” said Arnesen, quoted by Dutch outlet AD.

Amad was set for a loan move to help him gain first-team experience



“Too bad – everything was done. I’ve talked a lot with the people at Manchester United, but it’s more sensible to let him recover at that club.

He added: “It may be a while before he comes back.”

Amad announced his exciting potential with a superb backwards header against AC Milan in the Europa League back in March.

That came after he was fast-tracked into United’s first-team plans, having been snapped up in the January transfer window after he had made just five senior appearances for Atalanta.

Amad has primarily played as a winger, but it is thought he also boasts the attributes to become an effective No10.

And while there are high hopes for him at Old Trafford, Solskjaer said he was “excited’ by a plan for Amad to leave Manchester in search of more experience.

Asked whether he expected Amad to go out on loan, the United boss said: “Yes I do. It’s not 100 per cent signed but we’ve agreed.

“I don’t have to say which team it is yet, but we’ve found a place that Amad feels excited about and we feel excited about.”

Before it was reported that Amad was closing in on a move to Feyenoord, Crystal Palace and Sheffield United were among the clubs linked with taking him on loan.

Daniel James, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial are all also seen as more realistic options for the first team than Amad – although speculation has linked all three with moves away from United before the transfer window shuts on Tuesday.
