After just recovering from injury, Amad was not called up to the Ivory Coast’s international squad during this break.

So in between training commitments for Manchester United, Amad used the time to do a bit of sight seeing.

The Manchester United teenager posted an image outside Buckingham Palace in London.

Preparing for a comeback

Fabrizio Romano reported at the weekend that Amad is closing in on a full return to fitness.

He claimed Amad was 10 days away from a return to full training, indicating he is expected back just after the Atalanta game.

There is serious competition for a spot at United and Amad may take a while to make a first team squad.

But he could target the away trip to Atalanta on Tuesday November 2 as a possible chance to be involved.

Expanded Champions League benches and the five substitutes rule gives Amad greater opportunity.

 

And he could also be useful simply as a guide, with United heading to Italy to play against his former club.

Any inside information Amad could impart about the stadium, team, etc, could be useful.

Amad would also be eligible to play in the UEFA Youth League at under-19s level if United chose for him to drop down and build up his fitness.

Fabrizio Romano reported also that the most likely scenario for Amad is he is sent out on loan until January. Until then he will be looking to make himself useful and seize any opportunities he can get.
