However, a number of stories surfaced on Tuesday suggesting that with Aaron Wan-Bissaka expected to leave, Barcelona fullback Sergino Dest would arrive after the scheduled time.

A lot of departures, both temporary and permanent, are anticipated in the final few days despite the tardy arrivals. Amad Diallo is one such player who will undoubtedly go out on loan.

The Ivorian was already being pursued by clubs around Europe, according to The Peoples Person, and United was considering loaning him to Championship teams so that the winger could play for the first squad in England.

The Daily Mail and Laurie Whitwell of The Athletic both claim that Sunderland, a Championship team, has discussed Amad with the Red Devils.

Blackpool is a Ligue 1 team. Nicely, Besiktas of Turkey and Anderlecht of Belgium were also said to be interested, but it appears Sunderland may be winning the race due of their management.

The 20-year-old, who has not yet appeared for manager Erik ten Hag this season, is reportedly of interest to the Championship side, according to The Athletic.

A good fit for Black Cats’ playing style The new Black Cats manager, Tony Mowbray, plays a style of football that will suit the former Atalanta starlet, and that could help Sunderland, according to United winger Whitwell.

The 20-year-old has yet to be included to any match squads, and with Antony’s arrival, his time with the first team will likely decrease significantly.

Ten Hag believes that playing regular minutes somewhere will be ideal for his development, but the team has been cautious in choosing his next stop in light of his trying time away from Rangers last season.

The winger was purchased by the club’s former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for £37 million back in 2020, but he has only managed to make nine senior senior appearances for the team thus far.
