Diogo Dalot could yet spend the 2021/22 season at Man United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United squad is looking in great shape. The Old Trafford club are gearing up for a memorable campaign.
It is widely expected that before further signings are made this summer, Solskjaer is going to have to sell some players and raise some funds.
One of those players whose head looked to be on the chopping block was Diogo Dalot. Well, that may no longer be the case…
According to the Manchester Evening News, United are ‘open’ to keeping the out-of-favour 22-year-old at the club.
Dalot spent last season on loan with AC Milan where he did okay, following struggling to break into the first-team at Old Trafford. The Portuguese had featured just 35 times in his four years as a Red Devil – most of those as substitutes.
However, Dalot impressed during Everton, leaving the Old Trafford Faithful feeling like the full-back could yet have something to offer.
Well, it now seems as though Solskjaer feels the same way about Dalot, as we approach the start of the season.
There was plenty of reported interest in Kieran Trippier, though if United don’t make a move for the Englishman, then there’s very little in the way of competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka aside from Dalot. Hence why the ex-Porto star may still have a chance to make his mark here in Manchester.
Injuries haven’t helped his case but that was an excellent cameo against Everton, topped off with a lovely headed goal. If he’s given a real chance to prove his worth, I still believe there’s a great player in there who could do a job when needed.
