Amad was signed back in October 2020 for an initial fee of £19 million, with the final cost potentially rising to £37 million with bonuses from Atalanta.

More precisely, a fee with Atalanta was agreed back in October 2020 on deadline day, and his transfer was completed in the next transfer window, in January 2021.

Amad was actually the first player to be processed through the new Brexit application system, and many Manchester United fans have been eagerly awaiting for the day he is able to explode onto the Old Trafford scene.

He has scored one goal so far for the club - a quite brilliant backwards header against AC Milan in the Europa League knock-out stages in 2021, however has not really ever nailed down a position in the first team squad.

He spent the second half of last season on loan at Rangers, and this season has been sent on loan to Championship side Sunderland.

Amad did score for United during pre-season against Rayo Vallecano, however since his move to Sunderland he has only played 66 minutes, fleshed out over three Championship appearances so far.

However, during their latest game, Amad assisted a lovely goal that was unfortunately ruled out for offside, which he shared on Instagram.


After spending a fairly hefty fee on the Ivorian international, Manchester United and their fans will no doubt be hoping this Championship loan will work for Amad.

As a left-footed right-winger, Amad's spot is currently occupied by new £85 million signing from Ajax, Antony.

As time goes on, hopefully Amad will be able to break into the Sunderland side and make a significant impact on the team in the future.

Erik ten Hag will no doubt keep an eye on the youngster during his loan, as he has a key interest in tracking youth players' developments, and was in attendance to watch United's U21 team draw 1-1 with West Ham U21.

Manchester United will face Manchester City once the international break is finished as Erik ten Hag looks to dethrone the noisy neighbours after their great start to the season.
