Tuttosport: Milan hit hurdle in pursuit of full-back as Man Utd need to raise funds now

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are struggling in their attempts to sign Diogo Dalot back from Manchester United, according to a report.

One of the main rumours doing the rounds at the moment is that Milan want to re-sign Dalot from United after his loan spell last summer. The Portuguese full-back represents a profile would could alternate with the usual starter Davide Calabria, and it is possible that an option to buy could be inserted as part of a new loan deal.

According to the latest from Tuttosport (via MilanNews24), the negotiations for Dalot are getting more and more difficult as Manchester United have put up a wall regarding the chances of him being loaned out.

The Portuguese full-back is Pioli’s favoured target to fill the role of deputy to Calabria, having already had him in the squad last season, but United are not opening to a loan option instead wanting to monetise from a sale, especially after the investment to sign Raphael Varane.
