Diogo Dalot’s future at Manchester United secure contrary to reports

Manchester United star Diogo Dalot can rest at ease after reports claimed his future at the club is secure, contrary to earlier rumours.

In a shock to all fans, the Portuguese was suddenly said to be on the Old Trafford transfer-list, just a year after arriving.

The young full-back was expected to be United’s right-back for the next decade after Jose Mourinho invested around £19m in him.

It’s believed the rumour surfaced when the Independent accidentally claimed Dalot was being allowed to leave instead of Matteo Darmian.

They quickly corrected their error but by then it was too late with the news doing the rounds on social media.

According to the Telegraph, the Red Devils have full faith in Diogo and are hopeful he can have a bright future at the club but for the time being he will feature further forward or as cover for the left-back position.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s arrival did raise question marks but many felt it just meant the duo would have healthy competition for the right-back spot.

It appears Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees matters differently and instead Dalot can expect to be more attacking next season.

The former Porto man did play as a right-winger a few times in the last campaign, most successfully during the historic comeback victory vs PSG.
