Sheffield United fans have not been able to believe the latest player to be linked with a move to their club this summer. 

Reports coming from TalkSport have claimed that Manchester United starlet Amad Diallo is wanted by Sheffield United after the teenager was told he can leave on loan.

The story states the teenager – who joined from Atalanta for £37m in January – will find minutes hard to come by, with the recent signing of Jadon Sancho pushing him down the pecking order.

The Bladesman shared the news on their Twitter feed, relaying to fans that the club would seek a season-long loan deal, and it didn’t take long before Blades fans were reacting online.

Here’s what these Sheffield United fans had to say…

“Now THIS would be a statement of intent. Honestly can’t see it going through with wages etc but it would certainly give the lad a chance at more regular first-team football and a chance to back to Man U more comfortable with the English game.”

“Can’t be true, surely.”
“I would love Diallo. Only problem is he’s had interest from Premier clubs and he’s on a big wage. Only see it happening if we get Ramsdale/Berge out to fund it”

Diallo certainly impressed in his few outings with Manchester United last season, even scoring against AC Milan in the Europa knockout stages.

After suffering relegation from the Premier League, the Blades will be looking for a return straight back up into England’s top division.

The club are yet to make a notable signing in the this summer, but a loan move for 19-year-old Diallo from big a side as Manchester United would be an extremely impressive coup.
