Diallo, who has three years left on his present deal, arrived at Previous Trafford from Serie A outfit Atalanta in 2021. He was despatched out on a six-month mortgage spell to Scottish giants Rangers final season, the place he scored three objectives in 13 appearances throughout competitions.
Talking on Vibe with 5, Ferdinand stated that the 19-year-old needs to be loaned out once more to assemble extra expertise on the prime degree. He stated:
“Sadly, he simply is not prepared. He went to Rangers, could not actually get into the staff and have an effect on their staff, which tells you he is not close to stepping into the Manchester United staff. Have you learnt what I imply?”
“Plus, once more, is he the appropriate participant? He hasn’t obtained that explosive tempo that they are perhaps in search of; he is extra of a participant with a bit extra guile, who likes to come back to the ball and create like that, quite than operating onto issues and behind and stuff like that.”
The six-time Premier League winner added:
“I simply suppose it is a bit too early for somebody like him to come back in and take that mantle on. Sure, I do not suppose he is close to sufficient to the first-team squad. If he’d have gone to Rangers and smashed it at Rangers, then he’d have had an opportunity. However as a result of he did nothing, he’ll be a bit of bit off it, and he is somebody we are going to look to mortgage out, I would say.”
Diallo has been included within the Pink Devils’ 31-man squad for his or her pre-season tour, the place he’ll hope to show his mettle to his new boss.
