The prolonged woeful form of Diogo Dalot has persuaded Manchester United to favour offloading the full-back in the upcoming transfer window.

With just four appearances for the Mancunians this season, the star has gone down the pecking order considerably.

Injuries took out the majority of the youngster’s 2019/20 campaign, consequently being sidelined till January. When he did return, Ole Gunnar Solskjær was reserved in terms of deploying the Portuguese international completely out there, as a result of which the starlet started only once in the Premier League this season.

As per the ESPN nevertheless, Barcelona believe they could make use of the talented defender to rebuild their fallen form the next season, as the Catalans show interest in the Portuguese right-back.

The Red Devils could be massively benefitted from this transfer, if it happens, given how well Barcelona could pay for the 21-year-old. Moreover, having set their eyes on Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish, it’s also understood that any financial supplies coming their way would be celebrated.

The Spanish giants just had a poor season, showcasing substandard performances and hence finishing five points below the crowned champions Real Madrid.

Furthermore, from the perspective of the Catalan club, this campaign saw a lot of behind the scenes mayhem which had an impact of its own in the form the squad members exhibited.

Regardless, Quique Setién wishes to turn things around with the next season just around the corner. Accordingly, the Camp Nou outfit desires the likes of Diogo Dalot, given the possibility of Nelson Semedo’s exit in the upcoming transfer window with Man City the potential buyer.

If the youngster was to regain his initial form at Old Trafford, the full-back could provide variety of options in chief positions where United are deprived of. Nevertheless, Solskjaer shows no signs of having faith in the player, given how reluctant he is to use the Portuguese talent even when he’s short of options with other injuries.
