Diogo Dalot is reportedly exploring possible options to leave Manchester United.
Manchester United star Diogo Dalot is reportedly looking for a new club with his agent. increase. A possible exit for the Portuguese could force Eric ten Hag to sign his two right-backs.
Dalot is out of contract with United at the end of the season. However, the Red Devils have the option to extend his contract for another year.
The 23-year-old has started all eight Premier League games so far this season. He took Aaron Wan-Bissaka late last season to play as first-choice right-back at Old Trafford.
Wan-Bissaka really lost popularity under Ten Hag and was told he could go in the summer. A departure never materialized, but his future at the club looks bleak.
But he may not be United’s only right-back. Italian outlet CalcioMercato claims Juventus are interested in signing Dalot.
Juve want to leave Juan Cuadrado and Alex Sandro when their contracts expire next summer. They are therefore looking for a full-back and Dalot is on their radar.
Dalot and his agent are scouring the market for a new team, according to reports. If he went with Wan-Bissaka, Ten Hag would be left without a recognized right-back in his team.
The Dutchman probably needs to make two additions at this position, with Wan-Bissaka being just one understudy at United this season.
A £50 million deal sparked the interest of former club Crystal his Palace in the summer. But United were reluctant to accept the Eagles’ £10million offer, which has two years left on his contract.
If Dalot joins Juve, it will be his second spell in Italian football. In the 2020/21 season, he moved to AC Milan on loan and played 33 official matches.
Barcelona are also linked with the signing of Dalot despite having acquired Hector Bellerin from Arsenal in the summer. United acquired Barça and American right-back Sergino his Dest in the closing minutes, but
Dest joined AC Milan instead. Ten Hag managed Dest for his one season at his former club Ajax.
