The 19-year-old was signed by United in the summer of 2020 for £20million, rising to £35m with add-ons, from Serie A side Atalanta United.

Diallo has made nine first-team appearances, but has struggled for game time this season, despite scoring six goals in five games for United’s Under-23 side.

The young Ivory Coast international has reportedly been given the nod to move north to Rangers temporarily by Manchester United’s interim boss Ralf Rangnick.

Van Bronckhorst is thought to have previously tried to sign the youngster during his time in charge of Dutch giants Feyenoord and it seems he is on the verge of bringing Diallo to Ibrox. It is believed there will be no option to buy clause included in the deal.
