Last week, it was reported that Manchester United were unwilling to give discounts on a deal to let Diogo Dalot join AC Milan this summer. The club were reportedly being stubborn in negotiations with the Italian club but could be tested for their resolve once again.
The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at Milan and impressed to the point where there is renewed interest this summer but a deal is far from straightforward. Dalot is the only natural backup to Aaron Wan-Bissaka at the time of writing and the club would need some convincing to let him go.
According to journalist and transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, Milan are now preparing to make another offer for the defender. It’s claimed that the offer is expected to be a loan with an option to buy, Romano told The United Stand.
Manchester United are, however, asking for a big loan fee. It’s believed that the club is demanding between €4-5m for a season-long loan and for the Italian club to cover all of Dalot’s wages.
Romano says that Milan are not ready to meet United’s demands yet with Dalot believed to be ‘tempted’ by the opportunity to return to the Rossoneri ahead of the new season.
