TRANSFER NEWS: Manchester United Sign Young Full- back Diogo Dalot From FC Porto… He Has Words For United Fans

Manchester United have completed the signing of
Portuguese defender, Diogo Dalot from FC Porto
in a 5-year-deal.
The 19-year-old, who was understood to have a €20m (£17.4m)
release clause in his contract at the Estadio Dragao, underwent a
medical with Manchester United on Tuesday.
Here are excerpts from his first interview as published by
ManUtd.com;
Diogo, welcome to Manchester United. How does it feel to sign
for the club?
I’m very excited for the [size and] dimension of this club and I
hope to achieve great things here.
What do you already know about Manchester United and what are
your expectations of this club?
I know that this is one of the best clubs in the world and it is
unbelievable to be here and I hope to achieve great things.
You came through the system at Porto, another big club with great
traditions, so what has that taught you?
I grew up at Porto. Porto gave me everything. Who I am today is
because of what Porto gave to me and that has been most
important.
How proud do you feel to be Jose Mourinho’s first Portuguese
signing with United?
Yeah, it’s very good. It was very important to make this choice
and I hope to help him, because I know that he will help me to
improve a lot.
You’re still a teenager, but does the move show how much faith
the manager has in your potential to recruit you at this early age?
Yeah, I think that age is not very important now in football. I think
that if you work and you improve, I think you can handle it.
How would you describe yourself as a player?
Like a hard-working player, I think. I’m very instant in improving
and I’m mostly a hard-working player, I think.
Can you play at left-back as well as at right-back?
Yeah, I prefer to play at right-back, but if I need to play in any
position, I will play, no problem.
How excited are you for the challenge of Premier League football?
I’m very excited. For me, it is one of the biggest leagues in the
world and I’m excited to play there.
