Manchester United fans react to Diogo Dalot signing

Manchester United have confirmed a move to sign right-back Diogo Dalot.

The 19-year-old becomes the second player to move to Old Trafford this summer, following a deal to bring in Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred.

Full-back is an area that has been a real issue for Jose Mourinho since his arrival. For whatever reason, he doesn’t trust Luke Shaw, whereas Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia aren’t getting any younger.

Sure, it’s highly unlikely that Dalot will become a first-team regular over the next twelve months, particularly as he’s only played six top-flight games in his career, but he is an immensely talented young man.

Dalot is quick, tall, physical and positionally aware. His versatility is a huge bonus and the fact that he can play in both full-back slots gives his chances at playing time a nice little lift.

What’ll be interesting is whether he’s already ahead of the aforementioned Shaw in the pecking order, but I guess we won’t find that out until a month or two into the Premier League season.

It seems as though United fans all over the web are absolutely buzzing at the acquisition of the right-back.
