Diogo Dalot is looking likely to come back to Manchester United this summer.
Under Jose Mourinho, many questionable signings were made, most with the short-term in mind. However, one addition seemed to have longstanding goals in mind; Diogo Dalot.
Signed from FC Porto, the Portuguese was supposed to be the fix to our full-back issues. Injuries certainly played their part in his struggles, though Dalot didn’t really develop as we’d all have liked.
In the end, the decision was made that Dalot should leave on loan in order to play regular football. AC Milan would present an attractive proposition for the defender, who’d start well with the Serie A club.
Despite featuring 29 times, scoring two goals, Dalot hasn’t done enough to keep his place in AC Milan. For the course of the campaign, he’s been used as a back-up option at both right and left-back, as opposed to being a regular starter.
Check out the Tuttosport snippet on Dalot and his Man Utd return here:
The talent is there, though I’m not sure any top club see Dalot as someone good enough to start week-in-week-out. Despite hearing, numerous times that Milan would be willing to negotiate a fair price to sign Dalot, they’ve obviously don’t believe in him as much as they initially thought.
This leaves the Old Trafford club with a decision to make. Dalot will come back, no doubt hungry for more action. In all likelihood, all roads point to a permanent exit for the now 22-year-old.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has never seemed to fancy him as a player, preferring Brandon Williams on the right as his back-up choice, while going out and signing Alex Telles to compete with Luke Shaw over on the left.
