Wolves reportedly like Amad but salary is a potential issue

Manchester United winger Amad Diallo is available for loan and Wolves are one of the clubs potentially interested.

According to the Athletic, United want to loan the Ivorian to a club in the Premier League.

Wolves are a potential destination and they apparently scouted Amad before he moved to United.

That was during Nuno Espirito Santo’s reign, and there are now a few factors putting Wolves off a move.

Why Wolves haven’t moved

They report that Wolves are not especially keen to develop a player that they have no chance of signing permanently.

More bizarrely, it’s said that Amad’s £25,000-a-week wages are also a problem for Wolves.

If that’s true, it’s a real indication of how Wolves are trying to tighten their belts this summer.

Also, Amad just hasn’t played enough Premier League football to show clubs such as Wolves what he can do.

How good is Amad?

Amad is very highly rated at United and was one of the brightest academy talents in Italy with Atalanta.

Daniel James called him ‘unbelievable’ back in February and he scored against Milan in the Europa League last season.

He’s just raw, and with Wolves having already brought in a tricky right-footed winger who likes to cut in from the left in Francisco Trincao, there might not be room for another.

Perhaps this is an avenue Wolves would re-explore if Adama Traore left, but Amad would be a hugely exciting loan signing and help account for Pedro Neto’s extended injury absence as well.
