Amad Diallo Set To Secure Shock Move Away From Manchester United

​Amad Diallo is on the verge of completing a shock loan move away from Manchester United ahead of transfer deadline day. 

There's just a couple of days left for clubs to do their business before the January transfer window slams shut. 

And it appears Ralf Rangnick is set to loan out Amad ahead of the second half of the season.

That's according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano​ who says the 19-year-old is in line to join Rangers on a straight loan. 

An agreement has been reached on a six-month deal and there's no option to buy included. 

Rangnick has approved the transfer which is set to be completed and signed within the next few hours. 

Amad moved to Man United in 2020 for a reported £33 million with add-ons. 

He made eight appearances last season, but featured in just three Premier League matches - scoring a goal against AC Milan in the Europa League.

The Ivory Coast winger has played just one game this season, starting in his side's 1-1 draw against Young Boys in the Champions League.

Amad will finally get his move after his proposed switch to Feyenoord at the start of the season ​fell through after the player suffered an injury.

He'll link with up Giovanni van Bronckhorst​, who, of course, replaced Steven Gerrard in November.

Speaking about potential deals, Van Bronckhorst​ said: "We are looking to add a player to the squad, but as I said before, it needs to be a player that we think is right.​

"You don’t want to just add someone to make up the numbers.

"You want to have the balance in the team also good.

"We are definitely looking to add a player in the coming days."

Rangers currently sit at the top of the Scottish Premiership, four points ahead of second-placed Celtic.
