Man United will not allow AC Milan to sign Diogo Dalot on a permanent deal

Manchester United are reportedly unwilling to let AC Milan sign full-back Diogo Dalot on a permanent deal in January as the Portuguese defender remains highly-rated by current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Dalot, 21, joined United in 2018 from Liga NOS side FC Porto in a transfer which cost the Reds’ hierarchy a respectable £19.8m, as per Transfermarkt.

Since his arrival two-years ago, Dalot has gone on to feature in just 35 matches in all competitions for the Reds, contributing to four goals along the way.

In an attempt to continue his development, United’s decision makers allowed Dalot to join Serie A side AC Milan on a season long-loan during the summer.

Dalot burst onto the scene for the Rossoneri after scoring one and assisting another on his debut against Sparta Praha in the Europa League.

According to a recent report from ESPN, United will not be willing to allow AC Milan sign the 21-year-old full-back on a permanent deal when his loan expires next summer.

It is understood that Dalot remains highly-rated among the United coaching staff with Solskjaer confident he can develop into a future first-team regular.

Dalot currently has two and a half years left on his current contract with the club retaining the option to extend it by a further year.
