Fabrizio Romano details Man United’s response to interest in fringe player today

Posted by

Obviously all the interest surrounding Man United is going towards the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, but you can also imagine that the prospect of paying his wages will hasten the departure of some fringe players.

On paper, Diogo Dalot looks like the perfect alternative to Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back because he offers a more attacking threat, while he also has versatility and plenty of upside so he’s a player that should be sticking around.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like he’s going to get a proper chance to prove himself, but Fabrizio Romano has indicated that Man United are only going to allow him to go if there’s the possibility of a permanent deal:

He even states that there has been interest in the recent hours so it still sounds like something could happen, but it also suggests that the current offers have been loan deals without any kind of obligation to make it permanent.

The Portuguese defender was impressive for AC Milan last year but a permanent deal didn’t emerge, so it will be interesting to see if it’s them or someone else who actually makes the move to bring him in.

  1. If United sell / Loan Dalot, they need cover and that will be taking Williams or Laird off of Loan, as Madrid will not reduce the price of Trippier.
    United missed a trick earlier in the transfer window when they should have swapped Dalot for Franck Kessie. He would have added some steel to the midfield, something that Fred clearly lacks
