Manchester United’s Diogo Dalot looks almost certain to leave the club this summer as he is reportedly now being told to train alone and away from the rest of the squad.
Dalot, 21, joined United from Porto under Jose Mourinho in 2018 in a transfer which cost the Reds £19.8m TransferMarkt, however, having only made 34 appearances in all competitions since his arrival, the youngster has now found himself at the bottom of the pecking order.
It was reported earlier this week by The Mirror that Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton were planning a £10m bid for the Portuguese full-back in an attempt to ensure adequate cover is available for the ageing Seamus Coleman.
The latest development in Dalot’s seemingly doomed United career comes as the 21-year-old has been forced to train alone and away from the rest of the squad, according to Manchester Evening News’ senior writer Samuel Luckhurst.

Fans must surely be wondering what the full-back has done so wrong to be cast-out so much by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Despite a campaign littered with patchy performances, the United faithful will be questioning whether or not the youngster has been given enough opportunities.
Of course, Solskjaer’s issue with Dalot could be down to an attitude problem, in which case, Dalot looks increasingly less likely to be able to make amends as he is now a firm favourite to depart United this summer.
