Man United signing gives Jose Mourinho injury boost ahead of Brighton clash – report
Manchester United will be handed the boost of Diogo Dalot's return to full fitness, according to a report
Diogo Dalot is set to make a return to full training this week ahead of Manchester United’s clash against Brighton on Sunday evening, according to a report in England.
Metro is reporting that Dalot has impressed the club’s fitness coaches and the Portuguese full-back will make a full return to first-team training in the next few days following his knee injury.
The same article states that Manchester United believe the summer signing will take a full part in the training session but the suggestion is that Dalot will require a couple of weeks to get up to speed.
According to the same story, Dalot will start off with ball drills before gradually increasing the intensity of the training sessions ahead of his return from the knee problem.
Manchester United signed the 19-year-old in a £17m deal from FC Porto in the summer transfer window to bolster Jose Mourinho’s defensive options ahead of the new Premier League season.
Dalot will be challenging Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian for a spot at right-back, although the summer signing can also play on the left side of Mourinho’s back four.
Manchester United were 2-1 winners against Leicester City in their Premier League opener on Friday night.
