Manchester United could let Amad leave on loan before the transfer window closes as they consider their attacking options for next season.

Amad, 19, is on international duty at the Olympics with the Ivory Coast, who have reached the quarter-finals in Tokyo after finishing second in the group stage.

Right winger Amad may be allowed to get regular playing time elsewhere depending on the situation with Marcus Rashford, who is due to undergo surgery on his shoulder that could sideline him for two months.

Fellow forward Anthony Elanga has scored two in the last two friendly games and United are undecided on whether to let the 19-year-old Swede go on loan because of Rashford's situation.

"We use every single player, we think about every single player's and the club's best pathway, what's best for the season and best for the future," Solskjaer said.

"Amad's enjoying the Olympics. We'll sit down towards the end of the window and see where we are.

"Of course, Elanga, the decision on him is a big one. Marcus Rashford, what's the injury status. We'll make a decision on Amad when he comes back and sit down with him.

"He (Elanga)'s giving me a great problem if you like, as you say. Players who score goals, who've got that enthusiasm, that energy.

"We want to play a pressing game. There are no frills. If you ask him at half-time to run over to the cricket ground and get us a drink, he'd do it. He's that type of lad.

"He's been brought through in the academy and these are the boys you love to see do well as a manager and if they give you reasons to play them, you have to play them."
