AC Milan ready to start negotiations with Manchester United for Diego Dalot
A.C. Milan are reportedly interested in securing a permanent deal for Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot.
Having fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford, the Portuguese youngster has been allowed
to link up with the Italian giants on a season-long loan deal.
According to Sport Witness, the Serie A giants are preparing to enter into negotiations with the
Red Devils to extend the player’s stay in Italy. AC Milan are desperate to initiate talks immediately
and could start their discussions with Manchester United in the next few days.
Dalot joined Manchester United from Porto in the summer of 2018 and enjoyed a decent first season.
However, after the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka a year later, the Portuguese found himself further down
the pecking order
at Old Trafford. Dalot was afforded opportunities to win over manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer,
but the Portuguese failed to impress.
He secured a loan deal to AC Milan in the summer and has been in and out of the Rossoneri
first eleven so far, managing 16 appearances and even scoring one goal.
It was initially thought that the chances of Dalot’s loan deal being made permanent were quite slim.
It was believed that AC Milan would only sign the Manchester United player for the right price.
The Serie A giants also wanted the player to justify his €20m price tag before any talks of a permanent move
could be initiated.
