AC Milan are reportedly yet to make a final decision about the future of Manchester United loanee Diogo Dalot for the next season. And the Rossoneri don’t believe the price that the Red Devils are asking is fair either.
After having an awful time at Manchester United Dalot was sent on loan to Milan to find confidence and get some minutes under his belt. As it was very hard for him to find game time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The 22-year-old versatile full-back has made 32 appearances in all competitions for the Rossoneri and managed to score twice.
The Portuguese U21 international has had a mixed time in Milan. At times he did very well and on the other occasions, he hasn’t been good enough for Stefano Pioli’s side. For these reasons, he hasn’t been able to solidify his first-team spot. And his inconsistency led the Milan board to think twice before making the final decision.
Will Milan sign Dalot from Manchester United permanently this summer?
According to Milan News, Milan aren’t convinced by the valuation of Manchester United for the Portuguese full-back. The Rossoneri will only finalise the deal if the Red Devils reduce their demands.
Otherwise, If Diogo Dalot leaves the club this summer then Pierre Kalulu or Andrea Conti could be the backup option for Davide Calabria on the right-back spot.
However, it is sure none of them has the ability to manipulate the ball going forward like Dalot has. The Portuguese defender on the one side and Theo Hernández on the other will be a great attacking full-back pairing for the Rossoneri.
Following a pretty good season with Milan, Napoli have also shown an interest to sign the Manchester United loanee Dalot for next season. Napoli’s currently full-back Elseid Hysaj is likely to leave this summer and Dalot could be a perfect replacement for the Albanian.
If Dalot can overcome his inconsistency and fitness issues. And play regular first-team football at the highest level then he can be a great asset to have. But, wherever he ends up in the next season, he has the potential to become a great player.
