Sheffield United are in negotiations to sign Manchester United winger Amad Diallo on loan, according to talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook.
The Ivorian, who cost the Red Devils €40m (£34m) ten months ago, is expected to leave Old Trafford in order to gain more first-team experience, and Crook claims the Blades are the favourites for his signature:
Hi. Yes was told on Monday it was a strong possibility. Believe talks are quite advanced. He’s been on their radar since January.

The signing of Diallo would be a huge boost for manager Slavisa Jokanovic, who has had a difficult start to his reign at Bramall Lane.
It is believed that the Yorkshire club will soon lose their number one goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale, to Arsenal, while an agreement to sign Ronaldo Vieira on loan from Parma has collapsed.
Getting a player of Diallo’s quality in through the door would be a massive lift, especially after United suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat to West Brom last night. We shall see in the coming days whether the Blades can wrap up the move.
