Amad hopes to feature in Erik ten Hag's Man United squad for the 2023/24 campaign.

After a brilliant loan spell at Sunderland this season, Amad will be hoping to shine in a Manchester United shirt next season.

Transferred from Italian side Atalanta in January 2021 for a whopping £37m, Amad was loaned out last August, joining Sunderland side still adjusting to Championship life after four seasons pain in the national championship. The 2021/22 season was on loan at Rangers and didn't get enough opportunities to show off his abilities.

However, in the light phase, it was different. After gradually acclimatizing to his new surroundings, Amad quickly began to find his footing at Championship level.

Working under experienced Black Cats coach Tony Mowbray, who is no stranger to getting the best out of young players, the Ivorian quickly began to show why United have dumped so much a lot of money into his contract when he was a little over two years old. Scoring five goals in seven league games on either side of the World Cup break meant he was quickly attracting attention.

Although contracted to operate on the right wing, 20-year-old Amad was soon tasked with operating as a versatile striker, often invited by Mowbray to play in an attacking midfielder position and sometimes even is an attacker. Star forward Ross Stewart has missed much of the season through injury and others have had to fill the void he left. Although Amad does not often play as a striker, he has sometimes been left with no other option. However, he is tasked with acting as an attacking midfielder, according to the data collected by transfermarkt, he has 9 times scored 5 goals from this position.

Sunderland is blessed with the ability to create in wide areas, which means that Mowbray, in an attempt to get Patrick Roberts, Jack Clarke and Amad on the field at the same time, had to experiment and experiment. Roberts, formerly of Manchester City, is most dangerous on the right, meaning Amad hides inside and acts as a number 10.

As the stats show, he's played well into the role, meaning United manager Erik ten Hag, who plans to welcome Amad back into his squad before next season, could be. see what he can do from the center of the United shirt. Regarding Amad's flexibility, Mowbray, speaking in March, said:

“I tried to tell you that the ball is not a problem for him. He can play wide, he can play back, he can go deep.

Amad scored 14 goals during his loan spell at the Stadium of Light.

“I think he can play central midfield for us in the Championship, you know. Just give him the ball and he very rarely loses it. However, we often put Roberts very far away and play Amad right inside of him.

"We had great success on the right side of the court when these two linked up and played with each other, who ran behind them and pulled. It was very beneficial for us. It was flexible. "I watch United games, I watch a lot of football, and Bruno [Fernandes] plays in every position, sometimes on the right wing, coming in in 10 or 8 minutes, he can go deep and finish join the midfield. Amad is kind of like a player."

While Amad is unlikely to be used in the No. 8 position for United, he could have the option of working in the No. 10 position, as well.
