During his time with Atalanta, Amad was considered as one of the top-rated youngsters in the world and Manchester United made a big decision to sign him in the summer of 2020. The Red Devils reached an agreement for the Ivory Coast international in the summer transfer window even though he would arrive at Old Trafford in January of last year.
The youngster’s raw talent had already caught the eye of Manchester United fans but the question now was whether he could adapt to the Premier League.
Consequently, the Manchester United management chose to put Amad in the youth team and he shined at that level.
It was not long before Amad made his senior debut for the Red Devils, and it was in the Europa League, where he scored his first goal for the club, against AC Milan, which remains his only goal for the senior side till now.
Rangers manager’s worrying comments on Manchester United youngster
With first-chances looking slim, Amad was linked with a loan move last summer. But an unfortunate injury led him to miss out on a possible move. In January, Rangers came calling for the youngster and signed him on a loan deal till the end of the season.
But chances have not come in abundance for Amad at Rangers either, with the Scottish club involved in a championship race with Celtic.
And as reported by Manchester Evening News, while speaking about Amad, Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst said:
"“He had a good start. You also know the change in environment for him is an aspect that he feels.“Also the level of playing now. He played a couple of games with United but only in the reserves so the intensity that he will be feeling in Scotland is much higher.”"
Van Bronckhorst is right. Amad indeed made a good start to life in Scotland, scoring in his league debut for the club. But since then, it has gone downhill for him.
According to stats from Transfermarkt, Amad has made 6 appearances across all competitions for Rangers till now, scoring once. It will be interesting to see how many more he can get between now and the end of the season.
