ESPN: Milan want to sign defender permanently as Man Utd look to fund €175 summer spree

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are keen on signing Diogo Dalot on a permanent deal and Manchester United could sanction his exit, according to a report.

Milan brought Dalot in from Manchester United last summer on a season-long dry loan, and with the end of the season approaching it is time to resolve the defender’s future. While Dalot has struggled for consistent starts in Serie A, he has found plenty of playing time and this has led to suggestions that Milan could look to keep him.

According to ESPN, Manchester United are looking for a potential summer spend of £150m (€175m) and some sales could help fund that transfer budget. There is expected to be around three outgoings as per the report, with Dalot mentioned as a player whose future is ‘up in the air’.

Sources have told ESPN that Milan are keen to sign Dalot permanently as per the report, though no fee is mentioned by the source nor whether it would be permanent or a loan extension with an option to buy.
