THE BIGGER PICTURE: The youngster's 12 goals have propelled Sunderland to the brink of the Championship promotion play-offs in their first term back in the second tier. In the face of managerial upheaval and injuries to key forwards, Diallo's admirable shouldering of responsibility at the Stadium of Light has caught the eye of Erik ten Hag and his fellow coaching staff at Old Trafford who see a bright future for their Ivorian star.
AND WHAT'S MORE: Despite his tender age, Diallo has already played first-team football in three different countries after emerging through the Atalanta youth ranks, signing for United and going on loan to Rangers. Reports suggest United's staff believe a move to yet another league would aid Diallo with the Eredivisie a possible destination.

WHAT NEXT FOR SUNDERLAND AND DIALLO? Diallo will be hoping his Sunderland adventure is not over just yet. The Black Cats go in to the final day of the Championship hoping to win at Preston North End and have other results go their way to clinch them a play-off berth. From there anything can happen.
