AC Milan interested in signing Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot.
Diogo Dalot played just once for Manchester United following season 2019/20. He joined Reds from Porto for around £19m in 2018 and has gone on to play 34 times for the club. Still has yet to secure a regular slot in Solskjaer’s starting line-up.
According to SKYSPORTS Milan have shown keen interest to sign a right-back during this window, and have also interest in Tottenham’s Serge Aurier and Norwich’s Max Aarons.
And Castles says the Red Devils boss sees the youngster as his third pick for right-back behind his trusted first two choices Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon Williams.
Reports from The SUN says: Solskjaer is resisting to let Dalot go. Castles told the Transfer Window Podcast: “It’s interesting to see what’s happening with two guys who’ve dropped well down the pecking order in that very heavily-staffed defensive section of the Manchester United squad.
“One of them, Diogo Dalot, the young Portuguese under-21 international, who has essentially been relegated to third-choice right-back in the planning Solskjaer is making for the coming season.
“Wan-Bissaka obviously has that position nailed down.
“I can tell you that Dalot’s not happy with his situation at United and is keen to leave, however he doesn’t have permission from the club to leave.
“You would think a loan deal would be a viable solution here, a loan with an option to buy in a year’s time, allow a player who was extremely highly-rated when he came to the club, picked out of Porto with a limited amount of experience because of the quality of his performances at Porto, [to leave].”
