Man United are open to offers for right-back Diogo Dalot.
I think it’s fair to say that nobody knows what’s happening with Diogo Dalot right now. One week, AC Milan are dead-set on signing him, the next, Dalot is returning back to Manchester.
The latest update on Dalot’s future came from The Metro on Sunday. Apparently, United are open to offers to sell the 22-year-old full-back, who has so far failed to make an impact at Old Trafford.
This season, Dalot has made 24 appearances while out on loan with AC Milan, which is more than the Portuguese ever managed in a single-season for the Red Devils.
What’s interesting is that The Metro state Milan have made a £12m bid to sign Dalot on a permanent deal, which would be a £6m loss for United, having signed the right-back for £18m under Jose Mourinho’s watch.
At this point, I just don’t see a way back for Dalot. I mean sure, there’s an opportunity there if he’s happy to sit on the bench most weeks and play second-fiddle to Aaron Wan-Bissaka – but he’s just not good enough to make that right-back slot his own.
Milan’s £12m bid seems pretty fair. Whether United are planning to accept that offer remains to be seen. At this point, you get the feeling they’re trying to drum up interest from other parties and look to get a bidding war on the go. However, that may be tough given the lack of money clubs have at the moment due to the global pandemic that’s still ongoing.
Sometimes, it just doesn’t work out for some players at certain clubs. That’s not to say Dalot is a bad player, he’s just in the wrong situation.
