AC Milan set to agree deal for £35,000 a-week Man Utd defender

By | March 1, 2021

Serie A giants AC Milan could reportedly try to secure the services of Man United’s full-back Diogo Dalot on a permanent basis in the summer.

The 21-year-old linked up with the Stefano Pioli’s side last year after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford, however, he has largely struggled to make an impact in the Italian top-tier, starting just four top-flight games.

However, Dalot has played a vital role for Milan in the Europa League and Coppa Italia this campaign, and he is supposedly hopeful of remaining in AC Milan beyond the end of the campaign.

According to Calciomercato, Serie A giants will consider Dalot’s future at the team when the current season concludes, however, their priorities right now are tying Gianluigi Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu down to new deals.

Man United forked out a fee of £19m to secure services of Dalot from Porto back in 2018, however, the report claims that Milan will not need to pay the same amount for the right-back if they do choose to make his stay permanent.

The Portugal Under-21s international will see his current contract at Old Trafford end in 2023, and Sevilla are believed to be keeping a close eye on progress as well.
