AC Milan won’t sign Diogo Dalot permanently for one key reason

Manchester United loanee Diogo Dalot is reportedly set to be reunited with his United team-mates in the summer after reports in Italy suggest AC Milan will not pursue a permanent deal.

Dalot, 21, joined United in 2018 from FC Porto in a deal worth £19.8m, as per Transfermarkt.

Since his arrival under then manager Jose Mourinho, the young defender has managed to feature in 35 matches in all competitions.

However, now under the guidance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Dalot found his first-team football heavily restricted after his Norwegian boss continued to field Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

In light of the Portuguese full-back’s stagnating development, the Red Devils’ hierarchy agreed to allow the 21-year-old to depart on a season-long loan.

Now with AC Milan until the summer, Dalot is finding himself bagging much more game-time.

However, despite being named in 14 matches in all competitions so far this season for AC Milan, according to Milan Live, the Rossoneri are unlikely to try and turn Dalot’s loan into a permanent move.

Milan Live claim that Dalot’s first few months in Italy have not been ‘exciting’, with the player displaying ‘great fatigue’, most notably, in defence.

The Italian outlet also go on to claim that Dalot may be available for €20m but the Serie A title contenders are unlikely to make a formal approach as they view other targets as a higher priority.
