Amad may not end up going out on loan after all, says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Manchester United are keeping an open mind and Solskjaer says Amad could stay.

The MEN claimed last week Amad would be sent on loan. Fabrizio Romano reported Crystal Palace and FC Basel were keen, with Talksport linking Sheffield United.

Speaking at his press conference on Friday, Solskjaer says he is tempted to keep Amad after how well he has performed in training this week.

Solskjaer said: “With Amad, I have to say he’s doing really, really well in training, he’s come back a little later after the Olympics and now he’s looking really good.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he stays as well. It has to be the right loan, the club, way of playing.”

 

Amad is an impact maker and United may end up regretting loaning him out.

Solskjaer believes he is capable of performing at a high level for United and could be used over the course of the coming season.

If Jadon Sancho or Mason Greenwood were to get injured, United would quickly regret loaning Amad out.

While the winger could benefit from playing regular football elsewhere, United will put their own needs first, quite rightly, and Amad may simply be too good to send out.
