The report claims: “Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to keep Diogo Dalot at Manchester United despite interest in the defender from a host of top European clubs, sources have told ESPN.
“Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are among those monitoring Dalot’s situation at Old Trafford.”
Should Man United sell-off Diogo Dalot?
Dalot joined Man United from Porto in 2018 under then-manager Jose Mourinho and last season it looked like the 21-year-old is going to be the next top right-back at Man United.
Then Ole Gunnar Solskjaer chose to go out and sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka last summer and the former Palace man has been the first choice right-back for Man United all throughout the current season.
Owing to injuries, Diogo Dalot has managed to make only 10 appearances for the club this campaign and with the likes of Barcelona and PSG interested in signing him, some reports had claimed that Man United could put him up for sale.
Clearly that’s not going to happen as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to keep the Portuguese as a backup to Bissaka, more so now that Ashley Young has moved to Inter Milan.
Man United paid €22 million for the services of Diogo Dalot but right now he is valued at €18 million by TransferMarkt. So clearly the OT outfit will not be eager to offload him at a loss.
Injuries have really hampered his progress so far this season but this unexpected lockdown has really helped him regain full fitness and if the league was to resume in June, Dalot might get a lot of game time since matches will be coming thick and fast.
