AMAD DIALLO is on the brink of joining Rangers on loan, according to reports.
The Manchester United winger, 19, has seen opportunities limited at Old Trafford since his £37million transfer from Atalanta a year ago.

And Anthony Elanga’s recent run of games out wide has further limited his chances of getting minutes.
According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the final details are being sorted on his temporary transfer to Ibrox.
It is understood the deal will be for six months.
Rangers do not have an option to make the switch permanent in the summer.
Romano adds interim Red Devils boss Ralf Rangnick agreed to let the youngster go and Gers could even announce the signing within the next few hours.
United will be hoping Diallo grasps the chance to gain first-team experience north of the border.
Despite his hefty transfer fee, the teenager still has just 17 senior appearances under his belt for Atalanta, United and Ivory Coast combined.
Of those, nine are for the English giants, with three starts and one goal in 12 months.
His only appearance for the Red Devils this season has been in the Champions League dead rubber against Young Boys when a number of youngsters were given chances.
By contrast, Elanga is up to eight run-outs for the 2021-22 season and grabbed his first goal against Brentford last week.
United have already let Anthony Martial head to Sevilla on loan this month but still have the likes of Jadon Sancho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford in the squad.
English clubs have until 11pm on Monday to get all their January business done, while those in Scotland have an extra hour until midnight.
