Manchester United winger Amad Diallo is set on a long-term loan at Feyenoord.
The Dutch team want to sign the Ivorian teenager in January for an 18-month stay – with a possible option to buy him directly if he succeeds.
Diallo, 19, arrived at Old Trafford in January this year following a £ 19million transfer from Italian club Atalanta.
But injury issues have hampered his progress and he now looks completely in excess of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s demands.
Diallo has not been in any competition this season and, although his thigh issue is sorted out, United could be ready to let him go abroad.
Whether they would be ready to sell him later is up for debate, however, as the club still believe he has huge potential.
The former Atalanta player has been snubbed from first-team action this season as the Red Devils beefed up their attacking options over the summer, with forwards Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo reaching 73million respectively of pounds sterling and 19.1 million pounds sterling.
The Northwestern club were ready to let the player go on loan at this point but an injury Diallo sustained in his last training session saw his agreed transfer to Feyenoord derail them.
However, Diallo will now temporarily switch to Rotterdam side.
Can Diallo return to first-team football at Man United in the future? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

The Ivorian winger recently spoke about his former coach Gian Gasperini and the influence the Atalanta coach has had on his career. “Gasperini has really helped me a lot.
“Against Udinese [for my debut] in Serie A, it was a big problem. She’s a fantastic person. He has been fundamental to my growth and I really thank him for all the years I have spent with him.
“I’m still in touch with some of my teammates and can’t wait to see them. I think it’s going to be a very, very good day.”
Diallo made eight appearances for the United man last season and scored once.
