Man United ready to sell 20-year-old after second summer signing – report
Man United are ready to sell Diogo Dalot this summer after Aaron Wan-Bissaka's signing, according to a report
Diogo Dalot has been told that he can leave Manchester United after the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to a report in England.
The Evening Standard, as quoted by The Sun, is reporting that the Red Devils have informed the Portuguese defender that he can leave Old Trafford in the summer transfer window after Wan-Bissaka’s £50m move to Manchester United.
The same article states that Manchester United have put Dalot up for sale despite giving Ashley Young and Phil Jones new contracts.
According to the same story, the 20-time English champions risk upsetting their fans by selling Dalot this summer after his impressive cameos in the 2018-19 season.
The versatile defender moved to Manchester United in a £18m deal from Portuguese outfit FC Porto last summer under the management of Jose Mourinho.
Dalot, 20, made 23 appearances in all competitions last term, although he was largely used as a makeshift right-sided midfielder as opposed to playing as a full-back.
Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on Champions League football.
The Red Devils ended the campaign without a trophy after Manchester United were eliminated at the quarter-final stage in both the Champions League and the Europa League.
Manchester United haven’t won the title since 2013.
