ESPN: Solskjaer’s stance on Man Utd defender made clear as Milan get ready to open talks

By Oliver Fisher -

Manchester United are set to reject any offer from AC Milan for Diogo Dalot in January, according to a report.

The Rossoneri secured the signing of the full-back on a season-long dry loan with no option or obligation to buy in order to not delay the negotiations and get him in as soon as they possibly could.

However, there has been speculation in the media since the window shut that Milan intend to sign the Portuguese permanently or at the very least secure an option to do so.

According to ESPN, Milan will have to re-open negotiations if they want to keep the full-back beyond the end of the season, though it does not seem that there is much willingness from his parent club to discuss a permanent deal.

Dalot – who cost around €22m when he moved to Old Trafford from Porto in 2018 – is a player that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan of.

Soslkjaer made the decision to allow Dalot to leave on loan and play regular football to continue his development, but it seems he has him in his plans for next season.
