Serie A side AC Milan are set to stick to their usual spring-time loan assessments before they make a decision whether or not to try and sign Manchester United’s Diogo Dalot on a permanent deal.
Dalot, 21, joined United in 2018 from FC Porto in a transfer that cost the club £19.8m, as per Transfermarkt.
Despite being one of Europe’s most highly-rated attacking right-backs, since his arrival, Dalot has struggled to force his way into his side’s first-team plans.
Having made just 35 appearances in all competitions, Dalot recently found himself allowed to leave Old Trafford and join AC Milan on a season-long loan.
The Portuguese defender has featured just twice in Serie A so far, this season, but has been a regular during AC Milan’s Europa League campaign.
AC Milan’s on-loan 21-year-old has featured in four European matches and has already been directly involved in a respectable two goals.
However, according to a recent written report from Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sports Witness), AC Milan are under no pressure to make a decision on whether or not they’d like Dalot to become a permanent player.
It has been claimed that the Rossoneri usually assess their loanees during the spring and are keen to stick to that policy in an attempt to afford themselves more time to consider Dalot.
