Man Utd’s stock as a club has wavered considerably over the years. While their more recent antics appear enroute to slowly regain the formidable place they occupied in European football for decades altogether, much work still remains to be done.
One of the hallmarks in achieving this is how they are able to raise the value of the players they nurture or purchase and bring to the outfit.
In this regard, a brilliant chunk of interest awaits one of their younger assets.
As per O Jogo (via the Mirror) Diogo Dalot has attracted interest from PSG and Manchester United will be willing to entertain an offer provided their asking price is met. This is reported to be in the range of £30-35 million.
A separate claim from Sport (via Sport Witness), amidst others, suggests that Barcelona is another club that are keen on signing Dalot.
As per it, the La Liga giants have identified the Portuguese youngster as a key right-back target, and are counting on there being a relatively low investment in order to secure his signature. It is understood that Barca view him positively from his Porto days itself.
The PSG claim, on the other hand, allegedly stems from a need to replace Thomas Meunier, whose contract is on the verge of expiring.
It is understood that the 21-year-old Dalot is struggling to be a regular option for the Red Devils after Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s breakthrough season this campaign.
As such, a move to either giant would certainly be a great move at this point in his career. At the same time, it could also be a rushed choice for a player who could yet make an impact by virtue of his versatility and occasional offensive bursts, as has been the case last season.
Will United end up sanctioning a move for the Jose Mourinho-era signing?
