Manchester United youngster Amad Diallo has taken to social media on Monday, to provide an altogether encouraging update on his recovery from injury.
Ivorian starlet Amad of course made the highly-anticipated move to Old Trafford back in January.
The 19-year-old was at the heart of one of a number of deadline day deals struck by United last October, when he joined Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri in putting pen to paper on terms with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
Diallo, though, unlike the aforementioned trio, did not actually make the move to Manchester at the time.
With the Reds having been waiting for international clearance and the processing of a new passport for their latest big-money addition, it was decided that he would remain in Italy for the opening half of the campaign.
Upon his arrival at the Theatre of Dreams finally coming to fruition during the winter window, it subsequently came as little surprise when the African found first-team opportunities tough to come by.
All told, the 2nd-half of the campaign saw Amad afforded seven appearances by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, five of which came from the bench.
Across these outings, the teenage wide-man directly contributed to a pair of goals, courtesy of an assist, and the below-linked finish versus AC Milan:

In turn, the widespread assumption throughout the recently-closed summer window was that Amad, in the end, would be farmed out on loan to secure more regular game-time at senior level.
In the end, however, despite United having added to the club’s attacking ranks courtesy of the arrivals of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo, the club’s up-and-coming African talent stayed put.
This came after Amad picked up an untimely injury in training, scuppering a move to Dutch giants Feyenoord at the last minute.
As outlined above, though, on Monday, an altogether positive update on his recovery has been forthcoming online, courtesy of none other than the winger himself.
Taking to Instagram, Amad posted a photo of himself decked out in United’s training kit, pointing towards an imminent return to the pitch.

Could the teen be handed a fresh chance by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, amid the club’s recent dip in form?
