Rangers news: Erik ten Hag wants quick decision on Amad Diallo future at Manchester United - Fabrizio Romano

Erik ten Hag wants to decide on Amad Diallo’s future at Manchester United as soon as possible once the winger’s loan spell at Rangers ends, according to Fabrizio Romano.

It’s been widely reported that Ajax manager ten Hag is set to take charge at Old Trafford with Guardian journalist Romano reporting on his YouTube account today [20 April] that he’s verbally agreed the job.

And ten Hag’s arrival in Manchester will have an impact on Diallo’s future, as well as the other senior players who are currently out on loan from the Premier League underachievers.

“[It’s] really important for Erik ten Hag to decide as soon as possible on the players who are out on loan,” said Romano on his YouTube channel on 20 April.

“Donny van de Beek, he knows Donny very well so he’ll have a conversation with him to decide on his future.

“Anthony Martial, he will be back from Sevilla and he wants to decide on Martial as soon as possible. He doesn’t want the club to arrive in August with these players maybe still available on the market.

“He wants these players to decide if they are a part of the project or not now, in May or in June. Not at the end of the market.

“Same for Amad Diallo, who’ll be back from Rangers.”

Stay away

If Rangers are considering a second loan deal for Diallo, they can forget it.

The 19-year-old has been a complete flop at Ibrox and has barely managed to get any game-time.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst needed to sign a right-winger in January due to Ianis Hagi’s season-ending injury and the fact the options were already light in that position.

And even with Diallo in the squad, there’s still a lack of strength in depth on the right-hand side of the attack.

Diallo scored on his debut at Ross County but what has he done since?


He’s made just seven appearances in all competitions for the Light Blues and only three of them have been as starts.

Van Bronckhorst has left him as an unused substitute in all six of Rangers’ Europa League knock-out games, hooked him at half-time in his first Old Firm derby and has since left him out of every big game.

Van Bronckhorst doesn’t seem to trust Diallo and we don’t either.

It’s hard to say this as he’s only a young lad but you’d expect a lot more from someone who’s joined on loan from Manchester United.

In other Rangers news, Hibernian fans will be furious if they hire this linked Gers employee as their new manager, according to a BBC Scotland pundit.
