The injury canceled a planned loan move to Feyenoord.
Now, for the first time since, he’s posted a message on social media wearing United training clothes.
What are Amad’s prospects this season?
United’s willingness to loan Amad out spoke volumes to the club’s assumption that they couldn’t provide enough playing time.
New signing Jadon Sancho was an unused replacement in the weekend loss to Aston Villa and Amad is behind him in the pecking order.
A loan exchange is likely in January. Amad is a huge talent and he has to play.
The options will be very limited until January.
Like Anthony Elanga, he has to be content with a few missions for the U23.
It’s good to see signs that he’s pushing for a return to fitness.
Amad is now United’s number 16 after changing squad numbers to accommodate Raphael Varane at 19.
It is possible that he will return to training after the international break, provided he is not called up to the Ivory Coast squad.
From then on, until January, it will largely be limited to a handful of substitute performances.
