The thrill, excitement, passion, devotion. These are elements of every Championship season and the main reason we all like the second level of English football. Another reason is that many future Premier League stars are in the competition. In the 2022/23 season, one name stood out from among the others — Amad Diallo.

Amad Diallo from Sunderland

The route to Sunderland by Amad Diallo

In January 2021, the person from the Atalanta junior college signed for more than 20 million dollars at Manchester United. Amad Diallo arrived at Old Trafford as a possible potential star, but he was never given the chance to prove his worth. The boy has only played in nine games for the Red Devils since 2021. He was on loan at Rangers for six months in the interim, but he only participated in ten matches it.

Amad Diallo excelled in Sunderland.

When Amad Diallo moved on a one-season mortgage magic to Sunderland in the summer of 2022, everything changed for him. The 20-year-old Diallo led Sunderland to an unexpected spot in the playoffs. He scored 13 targets and three helps in 37 league games to cap off the regular season. In the playoffs game, Diallo also scored a goal against Luton. Although Sunderland was unable to advance, a successful year led scouts to focus on the child who was born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

What does Amad Diallo’s coming hold for him?

Amad Diallo currently holds a deal with Manchester United through June 2025, but it is uncertain whether he will be hired by Erik ten Hag. Jadon Sancho and Antony are Manchester United’s wingers, but neither of them failed to make an impact in the 2022 — 2023 campaign.

The most practical course of action for Amad Diallo, however, is to sign on with Manchester United during the preseason and prove that he deserves a spot at Old Trafford. Many venues will be lining up to sign the young star if he doesn’t fit into ten Hag’s ideas.

Feyenoord has already been mentioned as the potential destination for Amad Diallo. The Dutch champions haven't made official contact with Manchester United, but they seem very interested in bringing a youngster to De Kuip. Actually, Feyenoord were close to bringing him on loan in the summer of 2021, but thigh problems messed up the transfer that was close to confirmation.

Another choice is Sunderland. He could go back to the club where he developed a special relationship with Black Cat’s supporters after putting on blustery 2022 — 2023 season. Amad Diallo posted a message on Twitter following the loss in the quarterfinals:

One morning, we’ll cross paths once more.

The person also stated that head coach Tony Mowbray will remain on the job when he returns the following year. Amad Diallo is enjoying his time as the head coach, and it appears that he would return happily if Manchester United doesn’t rely on him. However, Mowbray’s potential is in question after failing to win the promotion through the playoffs.

Amad Diallo is one of the most interesting young players right now, so it is difficult to predict where he will spend the upcoming season. However, we should hear much more from him in the coming years.
