Premier League: There will be new rivals, Diogo Dalot insists on staying at MU

Diogo Dalot has been retained by Ole this season after appearing charming while on loan at AC Milan. However, he failed to break into the starting eleven because the coach preferred Aaron Wan-Bissaka to fill in at right-back. Dalot has only made seven appearances this season. (AFP/Oli Scarff)

Diogo Dalot, according to his agent, is unlikely to leave Manchester United (MU) in the transfer market this summer.

Since moving to Old Trafford in June 2018, the right-back has made just 65 appearances across all competitions, less than half of which have come from the starting lineup in Premier League matches.

Dalot started 19 times last season, after displacing Aaron Wan-Bissaka from first choice.

Although he wanted to survive, Dalot had to work hard. The reason is, the new manager of MU, Erik Ten Hag, will try to bring in a number of new faces in the next few months.

New competitor

Dalot will have a new competitor. One of the players suspected of being included in MU’s target list is Ajax defender Jurrien Timber.

The 20-year-old is able to play as a full-back and in the middle of defence.

Dalot’s representative, Carlo Goncalves, has spoken about the possibility of his client staying at Old Trafford, even though his contract is due to expire in 2023.

“He is very happy at Manchester United. The season went well for him personally, but obviously, it didn’t go well for Manchester United given the club’s expectations. But we hope Diogo stays. For next season, for sure,” Goncalves told 101 Great Goals via Sports Mole, Thursday (2/6/2022).

Dalot’s chances of staying with United could be helped by the sale of Wan-Bissaka, the long-term holder of the right-back position.

The 24-year-old’s last appearance was when United were beaten 0-4 by Liverpool on April 19.

Reportedly, Wan-Bissaka is interested in AS Roma.
