AC Milan keen to make Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot’s loan spell permanent

2 min read

Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot is wanted by AC Milan on a permanent deal after impressing on-loan this season.

The 21-year-old has been a regular since joining the Rossoneri on loan, with the club sitting top of the Serie A standings at the half-way stage.

Dalot has made 16 appearances in all competitions so far this campaign, proving to be a crucial part of the club’s upturn in form on recent years.

The Sun have now reported that AC Milan have approached Manchester United over a potential £15m permanent transfer this summer.

The Portuguese full-back joined United in the summer of 2018 for £19m but has made just 20 Premier League appearances since his arrival.

Dalot is content with life in Milan and is believed to be happy with the thought of extending his stay with the club whether permanently or another loan spell. 

Milan like many in Europe will struggle to splash huge sums on players due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so United might take a hit on what they payed if they sell the youngster.

The Red Devils have not yet decided on Dalot’s future and they are monitoring his progress closely. 

However Dalot normally plays as a right-back, a position which is commanded currently by Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

He can also play as a left-back though United have plenty of options on that side including Luke Shaw, Alex Telles and Brandon Williams.
