Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still plans to use Diogo Dalot despite Manchester United closing in on the signing of Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to a report in England.

The Evening Standard, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Red Devils are on the brink of completing a deal for the England Under-21 international in a £50m deal from Crystal Palace.

The same article states that Wan Bissaka’s imminent move to Manchester United will cast doubt on Portuguese full-back Dalot’s future at the 20-time English champions.

According to the same story, the Manchester United manager Solskjaer still believes that Dalot will have a role to play within the Red Devils squad next term.

The report adds that Dalot’s versatility should work in his favour given that the Portuguese defender can play at left-back or right-back in the Manchester United team next term.

Manchester United have already signed Wales international Daniel James in a £15m deal from Championship side Swansea City earlier in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils finished in sixth spot in the Premier League table last term after Manchester United conceded 54 times in 38 games in the top flight last season.

Manchester United lost 2-0 to relegated Cardiff City in their final game of the top-flight season to highlight their defensive woes.
