Manchester United are set to complete their first signing of this
summer, but it may not be the sort of signing their fans were hoping
The Red Devils are set to complete a move for Porto right-back Diogo
Dalot but are still discussing the structure of the offer for the youngster,
who has a buy-out clause of £17.4million.
United want a right back to compete with Antonio Valencia who is 33
and needs constant treatment on a knee injury.
Dalot is a Portugal Under-21 international who can also play left back.
He broke into Porto’s first team in February in that position and played
in his club’s 0-0 Champions League draw at Liverpool.
Dalot helped Portugal win the 2016 UEFA European Under-17
Championship, scoring twice in five games in Azerbaijan including once
in the final against Spain.
United have discussed a number of options including Atletico Madrid’s
Sime Vrsaljko and Joao Cancelo at Valencia but have now opted for the
cheaper target of Dalot believing he has the potential to kick on.
