Napoli are willing to explore the possibility of bringing Manchester United’ versatile wing-back Diogo Dalot in the upcoming summer transfer window. Dalot is currently on loan at AC Milan on a simple loan deal until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old defender has had a mixed time at Milan after a horrible few years with the Red Devils. He has made 27 appearances for the Rossoneri in this season, scoring twice and assisting three times.
The Portuguese full-back has got the necessary playing time at Milan, what he was craving for at Old Trafford. Dalot showed his quality and his potential for Stefano Pioli’s side. However, they want more from the full-back before making the final decision about his future.
Napoli to buy Dalot from Manchester United
According to reports, AC Milan have doubts about buying the Manchester United defender, and Napoli are willing to secure the signature of the young Portuguese wing-back.
As to the future of Napoli full-back, Elseid Hysaj is still unclear. Who is linked to moving away from the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona and AC Milan are the favorites to land the Albanian defender at San Siro.
This could be an interesting exchange of versatile full-backs. Hysaj could go from Napoli to Milan as Dalot’ replacement and Dalot could come the other way around as Hysaj’ replacement, even though he’s a Manchester United player.
Diogo Dalot joined Manchester United from Porto in 2018 for €22 million. He was mainly a squad player in his debut season. But his fitness issues and inability to remain fit forced United to buy a new right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Which kept Dalot out of the team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and eventually loaned out to Milan.
The loan spell of Dalot set to finish at the end of this season. However, the interest for the U21 Portuguese international from the other Serie A clubs including Napoli is giving the message that the future of Dalot will be at Italy rather than at Manchester United.
