Manchester United defender on the brink of signing for AC Milan

 

Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot is set to sign for AC Milan. Talks accelerated on Friday with United willing to allow the 21-year old to join Milan in an initial season loan, says the Daily Mail.

The Portuguese defender joined Manchester United in 2018 for £19million but has fallen down the pecking order with the signing of Aaron Wan Bissaka and the late emergence of Brandon Williams.

The MEN understands Dalot, 21, arrived early at United’s Carrington training complex on Saturday morning before the rest of his teammates and only spent 30 minutes on the premises before leaving.

Dalot made his first start for United since June in Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup win at Brighton but has lined up just once in the Premier League in the last 16 months and not played in the league since February.

As reported on Calciomercato.com, the Portuguese international is expected to be a starter for Stefano Pioli’s side, with Paolo Maldini hoping that it will be a leap in quality.

United have also been in talks with Porto regarding left back Alex Telles though remain apart on their valuations.

Ethan Laird, the 19-year-old right-back, was promoted to the first-team squad earlier this week and United are interested in signing Brazilian left-back Alex Telles from Porto. Laird, Fosu-Mensah and the right-footed Brandon Williams could provide competition for £50m right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Dalot has been offered to a number of clubs including Everton and Roma but Milan have been the most serious and he is expected to sign over the weekend.
