It must be tough being a player who’s not getting a look in at a certain team, especially when it comes to trying to keep yourself motivated and ready to play.
There will always be some hope that a chance will present itself, so it must be soul-crushing when someone else is chosen to play out of position ahead of you.
Diogo Dalot rarely features in the Man United team and could’ve been a candidate to move on this summer, but he will surely want to leave after missing out against Crystal Palace tonight.
Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams have both missed the game through injury and Dalot has played as a left back before, but Timothy Fosu-Mensah has been chosen to play out of position ahead of him.
That could be a clear sign that his time at Old Trafford is up, and these fans certainly seem to think so:
Fosu-Mensah over Dalot! I love this? pack your bags son

Ole 100% does not rate Diogo Dalot one bit if he’s starting Timothy Fosu-Mensah (first appearance for Manchester United since May 2017) at left-back over him.

Dalot might as well pack his bags and book his flight back to Portugal now, imagine a bloke who hasn’t played for about 10 years starting ahead of you

How is Fosu Mensah playing over Dalot ?

After seeing the lineup it seems that there is some truth to the reports that dalot is leaving this summer…

Doesn’t show much faith in Dalot does it? Can only assume he’s gonna go #MUFC

The problem with selling him is that this will only help to drive his transfer value down, but it’s clear that he doesn’t really have a place at the club anymore.
